Hi Julien,

In XForms 1.1 we already added the digest function [1]. It allows you to 
specify the hash algorithm like the "hash" attributes in webforms2. 

It also has an optional parameter that indicates the encoding parameter, 
to let you overide the default base64 encoding with hex encoding.

PS: The samples still use the old name (hash-encode) of the function, but 
this already corrected in the cvs version of XForms 1.1.
