Cryptographic hash implementations have a lot of fairly strict requirements that make them extremely difficult to implement in a language like LiveCode. For example, they have to run in _exactly_ the same amount of time for the same number of bytes of input, no matter what those bytes are.

It would be good to have an external that provides a nice variety of cryptographic hashes, though.
