Follow up of bug 1340093. There, attachment 8838078 [details] required devs to manually nuke ~/.android. :nalexander pointed out we could programmatically check the algos:

> keytool -list -keystore ~/.android/debug.keystore -storepass android -alias androiddebugkey -v

and remove them if they don't match SHA1withDSA. Let's try that and use the same algos as a release build.

We should allow for either SHA1withDSA or SHA1withRSA... the release key is the latter.
If we have to regenerate one of the keys to match, we should regenerate the nightly key and force all nightly and aurora users to reinstall, rather than the release key and force all beta+release users to reinstall.
