The format should be defined in the PEP 438. If we adopt the
hash tag extensions, then the URL fragment will just start with
the md5= part and not necessarily also end with it.

pip and easy_install will then have to implement the
extension mechanism; and package authors will have to
decide whether or not they want to stay compatible to
versions of those tools that don't have these implemented.

I was just asking for the text on the page to be in line with
what PyPI actually checks.
