Before we look at removing things like this, I think we should look at
whether or not they actually have a significant maintenance cost.

This is derived from bureau/libcrypto-proposal that Emilila made in

We should remove the assembler versions of the following

                Blowfish, cast, des, rc4, rc5, ripemd, whirlpool, md5



The reason is that they are outdated, not in use very much, and
optimization is not important, compared to having a single reference source
that we can maintain and debug.
