As every one related to security probably knows, Rivest (and his
friends) have a new hashing algorithm which is supposed to have none
of the weaknesses of MD5 (and as a side benefit - not too many rainbow
tables yet). His code if publicly available under the MIT license.

Is there a reason not to add it to the standard lib, following the
hashlib "protocol"?
