	 "Snefru" is widely available, tho probably not widely used, and uses
	 MD5 for authentication.  The US goverment does not appear to have gone
	 after the author.  I wrote a system using MD5 for auth, inspired by
	 snefru, but I have no intention of allowing it off campus, at this
	 point.  :(

Snefru does not use MD5.  It's an alternative to it, and not as strong.
