I've just committed the change to run-webkit-tests (old and new) to have it

 This is why there were big checkouts during the last few days as I was
updating the old .png files to have checksums embedded.  I'll be doing a
follow up commit that deletes all the existing .checksum files from the tree
since they are no longer needed.

should no longer generate .checksum files for new tests or when using

If you have a patch already created that includes a .checksum file, it's OK
to commit it.  run-webkit-tests will ignore the .checksum file and I will
come by later and delete the .checksum file.

Let me know if you see any problems.
