PHP mhash module causes problems with Python md5 module.

                 Key: MODPYTHON-232
             Project: mod_python
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core
    Affects Versions: 3.3.1
            Reporter: Graham Dumpleton
            Priority: Minor

The Python md5 module is used in Session/Cookie code and also in the new module 
importer of mod_python 3.3.1.

For some PHP installations where PHP mhash module is being loaded, there is 
some sort of conflict between the two md5 hash libraries. This can result in 
mod_python code which relies on md5 module to not work properly.

To avoid this problem, suggest that Apache APR md5 routines being exposed 
through the _apache module and mod_python use that whereever md5 hashes 
required. This way operation of mod_python at least will not be comprised, 
although it will not help with higher level application such as Django which 
access md5 module themselves.
