Yes! This is one that *everybody* has to ask.

I think it would be better in section '5.1.2 origin reference', because
that is where the origin methods (url-fetch, git-fetch, etc) and the
sha256 field are documented.

In that case, it could go along with explanations of how to calculate
the hash for cvs-download, hg-download, and svn-download.

What do others think?
