Hi Manfred, hi all,

I found the bug ... but takes a bit. There are three (3!) places that
do the parsing of the return values, which is stupid and needs
refactoring, even if the semantics are slightly different.

Please wait a bit ...

Note to myself:
- setup_one_remotetlpdb does the check, and in case of expired
  sigs just continues.
- then we jump in TLPDB where the from_file routine again does a check
  and there the signature is not correctly checked.
- tlmgr/TLPDB should not reject the signature
- refactor signature/verify_checksum return value checking into a
  separate function
