The last version of the code is available here and is feature
Last concern, I declared blockSize in bytes where
std.digest.digest says it should be in bits. Why does it need
to be bits ? It looks like HMAC (which needs it) is explicitly
making sure it's always a multiple of 8 bits.
I was the one who introduced it, and I chose bits instead of
bytes because I didn't want to exclude the possibility that there
are hashing algos that have a block size not divisible by 8. The
algorithms are usually described in terms of bits, not bytes, so
it's not unconceivable that such hash functions exist, though I
don't know any. (Of course, HMAC wouldn't work with those, but
that doesn't mean that other algorithms couldn't.)
I'd suggest you change `blockSize` to the number of bits, and
introduce an enum `blockSizeInBytes` for internal use.
