Hi Nathan, hi everybody --

Yes, upstream pushed a new 4.3.0 tarball at the end of November.
40c0e53433fc5dc59296ee257ff4a813 is now the correct md5sum.  The old
tarball of 4.3.0 had an enormous amount of extraneous rubbish in it,
in hidden directories, so (when they finally noticed) they pushed a
corrected tarball, with the same version number :-/

Rather than hassling the SBo admins, I was waiting for 4.3.1 to come
out so I could submit that instead, but it's now been stuck at
4.3.1-rc4 since early November, so if one of our friendly admins wants
to correct the md5sum for 4.3.0, that would be lovely ;-)

Best regards
