I'm currently using a pure Python HMAC implementation in one of my
applications based on the one in Paul Rubin's p2.py.
This application does lots of HMAC manipulation, and I wonder if it
would be worth writing an HMAC module in C. On the other hand, I
wonder how much this would really speed things up since the underlying
hash function modules (sha, md5) are already written in C.
