+** The Skein Hash
+The underlying hashing code in Skerl is the reference implementation
+of Skein from the official NIST submission.
+Skein is a finalist candidate in the NIST competition to become SHA-3.
+It is a hash function designed by 
+Niels Ferguson, Stefan Lucks, Bruce Schneier, Doug Whiting, Mihir
+Bellare, Tadayoshi Kohno, Jon Callas, and Jesse Walker.
+Details on the algorithm as submitted and known analysis can be found
+at ecrypt:
+A full paper on Skein by the authors can be found at:
+The official Skein page (http://www.skein-hash.info/) uses the headline:
+Fast, Secure, Simple, Flexible, Efficient. And it rhymes with "rain."
