> I'd hate to see sha removed from the standard distro.

Me too; I don't see sha or md5 as crypto.  I'm only against adding new
*crypto* capability.

I'm also for isolating existing crypto capability so it's easy to
remove for anyone who has a need for a crypto-free distribution.  I
think we're already doing that, given that even on Windows, the SSL
module is a separate DLL.
