At a longer glance, it looks like I failed to update the hashes
correctly. The hashes for deblob-check 5.7 and deblob-check 5.8 both
began with "1n" and I must have somehow glazed over the differences and
not updated the local commit.

How guix actually managed to download deblob-check 5.8 from a different
URL and proceed to attempt to use the "old" store item without noticing
the hash was different still remains a mystery to me... I would have
expected it to error out before getting that far.
