On yet another related note, there a case or two for having a global hash for the individual files, with no payload induced foobar in it. One case is having a true "source id" calculated from all the files in an src.rpm, that would be also planted on any binaries built from these sources. This differs from the existing sourcepkgid (which is *build* specific) in that it would be arch-independent for properly written specs. This could be done as a hash of the existing hashes which is far cheaper than a hash of the actual contents, but then it'd be dependent on build-configuration which makes it less universal than a hardwired hash of algorithm X.

Nothing says such a thing would have to be limited to source rpms, which is where we get back to the deltarpm case: I have no clue about deltarpm's inner workings, would such a thing be helpful/harmful/moo to the case?
