I had a brief look, and concluded it could rapidly lead to a lot of work.

An even briefer look just now in response to your ping suggests
I was missing your point, and that all you're asking for is that
random/unix/sha2.h be exposed in the public API.  Is that correct?

I would guess this code has never been tested, though there's
what looks like a placeholder in testpass.c.  Have you run it
at all?  How well does it work for you if you just copy sha2.h
manually to your APR include directory and use it for your module?
