Yeah, it's seems fairly common to write a wrapper.

Really?  As a user of commons-lang already, it seems to fall under the
"helper utility" aspect, similar to the static methods of *Utils
classes already present.  It's not providing any new codecs, just a
facade around existing core Java objects.  For compatibilities sake, I
did check when MessageDigest was included in Java core, and is
included all the way back in JDK 1.2.

I can provide the code and JUnit tests, and you guys can do whatever
you like with 'em. :) Is this the appropriate list?  What's the proper
method to transfer copyright to ASF?
