Hmmm. I see the patch entry, but it seems to be missing the actual

Did you code this from scratch, or did you base it on the current
md5module.c? Is it using the openssl sha interface, or the higher level
EVP interface? 

The reason I ask is it would be pretty trivial to modify md5module.c to
use the openssl API for any digest, and would be less risk than
fresh-coding one.
