I'm sick of coping the checksum of important files by hand or QR-code 
to the download manager or console.

To solve the problem I suggest a checksum attribute in the <a href> 

example: <a href="http://example.com/important.file" 

Another advantage is that your visitors (browser) can verify that the 
document (e.g. a pdf) you linked to is still the same.
