If I understand well:
1. If no safetybelt, we checksum the waf file with debian/waf.sha1sum
2. If the checksum fail, we unpack waf and display a relevant mesg like
     "waf checksum failed, check the content in debian/wafunpacked and
do `sha1sum ./waf > debian/waf.sha1sum`"
3. adding "rm -rf debian/wafunpacked" in clean target (could depend on
the safety belt)

Is this correct ?
