I'm definitely open to this; the misc directory is presently a mess
and eventually I want to eliminate it completely. If we do go ahead
with moving it, it might make sense to eliminate the crypt_ prefix
from the filenames (i.e. just des.c instead of crypt_des.c) to
eliminate redundancy.

I would be interested in getting at least this, md5, and sha hash
support added, as long as they can be made compact. 3-5k each would be
ideal but I realize that might be difficult. For inclusion in musl,
they should have no non-const static data (i.e. no global state) and
also avoid using excessive stack space for temporary tables.
