[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] RFE: add a digest on the compressed payload content (#163)

Thinking about it a bit more, there are many other challenges with the multiple intermediate digest snapshots: the compression stream is created on file-by-file basis which isn't well suited for this purpose, as one file might be just a few bytes and the next one gigabytes, we'd presumably want equally sized chunks.

Maybe best to initially punt the multiple snapshots idea but leave room for future expansion: make the digest tag a string array, and define the contents as one or more digest snapshots where the last one covers the entire payload. Or something like that.
