Could say both: it might be useful for people willing to use one of our nightly builds, as the ISO verification process implies to verify its hash.
A simple app to help people verifying hashes in Tails is potentially an interesting feature anyway, if they want to verify the integrity of software or whatever data they downloaded. This is a widely used way of doing that.

Added to the agenda for the April meeting, so that we decide something eventually. It would be good if the proponents of this proposal provided the needed data beforehand, e.g. how much it adds to the ISO size, existing alternatives (if any) and why this one was chosen, testing reports...

The feature seems sound to have in Tails, and there is apparently no
alternative in Debian. nautilus-gtkhash seems well maintained in
Debian, has been tested on Tails/Wheezy, and installing it in there
only requires to download 89kB of .deb's.
So, at the monthly meeting we decided to install it in Tails 1.1.
