I just committed reduced binary size for raw-md4/md5/sha1 and nt2. Saves 
3 or 4 bytes per loaded hash (makes some difference for 135 million 
hashes, lol) and should help keeping good stuff in cache. It's not 
merged to bleeding yet - the get_source() gets a little trickier and I 
should get some sleep.

It passes Test Suite - actually I would have committed a hideous bug in 
SHA-1 if it wasn't for TS.
