when somebody downloads it and opens the zip, it is tempting to validate
the package against the included KEYS file. But if somebody could manipulate
the content of the package, he also could manipulate the KEYS file.
For that reason the KEYS file should be on a different location. This is the
case, that's why I meant it's not critical. It is on the other hand tempting
to take the included oneā€¦ nitpickery! Thanks for pushing out the release!
