I haven't looked at the current state of those formats yet, but for
raw-md5 there's a relevant change yet to be made: now that we keep the
full binaries in memory anyway, we can avoid having to perform the exact
comparison in cmp_exact(), and can move it into cmp_one(), saving on the
get_binary(source) overhead.  Perhaps we already have that code revision
somewhere, since before you dropped source()?  And perhaps it's similar
for those other formats.
