Simple hashing functions should be supported

Issue #72 new
Former user created an issue

I'd like to see support for simple hashing protocols like MD5, SHA1, SHA-256, etc... The purpose is to store hashes of files using the uniform Modular Crypt Format and passlib.

Is this something you would like to see making it's way to passlib?

    This sounds good -- passlib already has wrappers such as ldap_sha1, and hex_sha1. I'll have to look around and see if there are already some standardized module crypt format prefixes in use (unhelpfully, $sha1$ is already claimed by something that isn't plain sha1).

    I'd like to get this into Passlib 1.7, but I don't want to pile too many more things into the release, and hoping to get it out soon. If it does slip, will definitely add this to v1.8.
