Announcing hashlib...  md5, sha1, sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512
all in one module.  It uses (but doesn't require) OpenSSL for
significantly faster implementations of all algorithms.


This is a standalone repackaging of the hashlib included with 2.5 for
use on python 2.3 and 2.4.

When linked with OpenSSL you can also access its additional hash
algorithms but the SHA suite and MD5 are the only ones guaranteed to
exist in all hashlib versions.
