Yes, I first hesitated to replicate this mechanism but finally opted for
the implemented one. I didn't like so much the idea of adding and extra,
CI-specific file, to the output of some jobs.

Oh you keep repeating that to me, and I keep doing the same mistake!

Yes sure, I changed the database field to "checksum" so that we can use
the string representation you're talking about.

If a more web-aware hacker could propose something, it would be great
indeed :)

Thanks for reviewing! I just pushed those two commits and updated the
Cuirass package.  Now I'll see with Marius or Ricardo how to update
Berlin, I guess.
