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..
