Isn't this a leaked beta version, where the legality is questionable?

IMHO if that's the case we should not add any official support for it by adding the md5sums.

From http://www.spacequest.net/sq4/cheatdebug :
"There's a rare beta version of Space Quest 4 out there, which contains Sierra's debugging codes. This beta leaked from Sierra about six months before the game was officially released. It was distributed by a cracker group known as "The Humble Guys" (or "THG" for short). Besides the debug codes, the game appears to be very buggy and crash-prone."

Even ignoring the legal issues, the fact that this game version is a very buggy and crash-prone beta indicates that we should not support this version.
