I would prefer to ship a specific crypt with the driver, so it is always
the same. However, there are legal concerns--unfortunately I am not
aware of what they are specifically.
I doubt we can ship DES (like it would matter).
Can we ship MD5 internationally without reprecussions?
What is SHA-1? Can we ship it internationally etc?
What does MOO use for string_hash()? Is it as good as MD5 or others?
I can shag md5 from the FreeBSD distribution, if I can get some factual
information about shipping with it..
