Possible HASH algo addition for 5.22
Message ID:
Stumbled upon this in the last week and it would be interesting to add it
to our hash algo list and evaluate it.

5x faster? than our current hash algo could yield some sizeable benefits.

I incidentally ran an oprofile run on running dzil build under perl and it
seemed to indicate a sizeable amount of cpu time was in hashing stuff,
though not sure how reliable my investigation is.

I also note the INSTALL documentation does indeed list all the hash
algorithms supported, but doesn't give very much detail on them, such as
their relative performance traits and security concerns.

Just vague list of arbitrary values really.
