Not all files are downloaded via a secure protocol like HTTPS. That's 
true for FreeBSD, Linux and I would guess even for Free Pascal's 
releases (main site and whatever mirrors are available).

I also prefer FTP over HTTP(S) for downloading ISO's or large files - 
thus an untrusted connection, but fast. I'd rather have some checksum 
than nothing - simply for verifying that my download is not corrupt in 
any way.
