Yes please! Last time I checked there was 18 different md5
implementations across gnome, although some of them came from external
modules. At least we have this in out stack:

* libsoup
* gnome-terminal
* liboil
* evolution-data-server (3)
* gimp
* gnome-vfs
* gst-plugins-good (2)
* bud-buddy
* gdm2

so it would be a nice GNOME 2.22 Goal to remove these duplications.
