Khash is OK for sha1 keys, but I don't think it should be advertised as a 
second general purpose hash table implementation. Its far too easy to shoot 
yourself in the foot by using 'straightforward' hash- and comparison functions. 
Khash doesn't store the hash codes of the keys, so you have to take care of 
that yourself or live with the performance penalties (see [1]).
