(I've seen stub in src/misc/crypt.c) Yes, it's my intent to add a couple popular hashes; the work is pending getting small implementations of them under appropriate license (tomcrypt is probably the best source), and doing the necessary integration. Before doing any work on this, I also want to completely replace the current DES implementation with one from tomcrypt; it should be moderately smaller in code size, MUCH smaller in memory usage, and much faster.
