There are pure Python implementations of the MD5- and DES-based crypt
algorithms available from, respectively:
http://www.sabren.net/code/python/crypt/ (by michal j wallace)
http://home.clear.net.nz/pages/c.evans/sw/ (by me)
The former should be quite a bit more secure. It may also be faster
since it uses the md5 module internally, but I've never tested them.
