Good point. I've added a short introduction
What else would you like to see there?

Because of the range of possible uses, I'd rather not provide a
default, especially since future papers will likely necessitate
changing it. I've added some guidance below the table with your
SHA/MD5 suggestions (which I agree with).

You're in luck; That's the other example included. I added a link to
it from the quickstart to make it easier to find.
