I didn't follow the IRC discussion on this, but why are we now
discriminating against odd length values?  There is nothing in the doc
to indicate they can't be used, so this might cause some breakage for
what gain?  From a purely mathematical standpoint 'A' (for example) is
a hexadecimal number of odd length.  Why can't this be accepted?
