I agree on the speed, but crypto's dependency on OpenSSL makes shipping a
product a bit harder since you have to bundle it with OpenSSL as well. And
this makest harder to make a distribution for multiple platforms.

But if you need more than the SHA functions from crypto or distribution is
not an issue then crypto is the choice... unless you sit down and implent
what you are missing in Erlang!! ;-)

Cheers,
Torben
