If there are test vectors in whatever reference (eg. RFC) defines the 
format, we should use them if applicable.

If not, try to google some stribog hashes, or as a last restort just 
create them using other means. We have for creating lots of 
hashes but it doesn't support stribog. If possible, it should be added.

That might be a good idea. Actually there are a lot of formats that lack 
appropriate test vectors. All formats should test its own max. length, a 
null string (if applicable) and other random words of various length. 
8-bit formats should also have some 8-bit test vector.
