Ah, I took a peek there and it seems that I want to use filters... :-(
Hmmm, are there plans to move these into apr-util? Or are they really
hardcore apache?

Same here :-)

You could do something very dirty and copy the md5 code to a non
exported area of apr so you can still use it in the uuid code.
This way you can move (a copy of) the md5 code to apr-util.

Regarding MD4, I only have a link to RFC1320 for you:
