fyi - i've updated the python sha1/md5 openssl patch.  it now replaces
the entire sha and md5 modules with a generic hashes module that gives
access to all of the hash algorithms supported by OpenSSL (including
appropriate legacy interface wrappers and falling back to the old code
when compiled without openssl).


I don't quite like the module name 'hashes' that i chose for the
generic interface (too close to the builtin hash() function).  Other
suggestions on a module name?  'digest' comes to mind.
