[erlang-questions] RIPEMD 160 in R16B

Hello,

is there any possibility to add support for RIPEMD 160 in Erlang's 
crypto module? There was even some topic on erlang-patches list about 
this (http://erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-patches/2012-August/003003.html).

Also, would it be possible to add option like [hex] (or whatever) to 
crypto's hash functions to allow them generating hex representations 
instead of binary ones? I think it would more convenient than manually 
converting binary into string representations.

Last questions I've got: due to adding more and more Unicode support to 
Erlang, would it be possible in future to pass Unicode data into 
crypto's functions directly? Now it generates an error and I have to 
convert it using unicode module before passing into crypto's functions.

Regards,
Radek
