No, I was talking about "per archive settings".  I.e. the fact that we
probably won't need to worry about whether an archive provides
signatures.  Of course, we'll still need to worry about whether or not
the user's install has the tools needed to check signatures.

Of course we'll probably want to output a warning message if we can't check
signatures for lack of local tools, so the user is aware of that fact.
But there should be no prompts nor error messages.
