ExpectedHashes indicates that the key was inserted after 1254, and has a set of final content hashes (the final data after decompression). These will be checked before returning data, and if they are not correct, the download will fail. This protects against data corruption but it may also enable cross-network stuff and some interesting coalescing possibilities. The hashes listed below are included on all files of at least 4MB inserted since build 1254. Files over 1MB get SHA256, SHA1 and MD5. Small files get just SHA256 (this is used internally so leaving it out wouldn't help in most cases). ED2K is an eDonkey/eMule hash, and TTH is a Tiger Tree Hash; these are used in some common p2p apps. Unfortunately bittorrent puts a list of chunk hashes in its metadata along with filename etc and then hashes the lot, so we can't do anything with that. Obviously the hashes are not included if an insert has CompatibilityMode set to something older than 1254.
