I am interested in developing a checksum API, much like the random
number API being proposed.  The user can pick SHA, MD5, polynomial
hash, or a user-provided routine.  And there are functions that require
a GChecksum structure to maintain state, and other functions that
directly create/update the checksum w/o requiring state variables.
Attached is the MD5 impl I was looking into, which benchmarks faster
than the reference code.
