No arguments there. I had no intention of implementing the hash myself;
I was simply looking for something that was more cross platform (as the
projects describe it) than libdvdread. However as I think we figured
out, first shot at cross-platform more or less equates in actuality to
any platform libdvdread runs on. That means for the cost of a Python
bridging function we/I get both the hash and DVD CSS.  <silly grin>. The
best part? The hash in libdvdread is several orders of magnitude faster
than even the md5sum that comes with Linux (which BTW comes up with the
same answer as a Python source-only module that does the same thing and
does it in the same amount of time). 

So for now, with the exception of writing a thin Python->C module, this
is a solved problem. I did not mean to mislead on this. Sometimes I
forget who I am replying to....
