We can't really, unless we fix a pb in Studio.

Colm tried to upgrade bcprov to the latest version, and it makes the
studio build to fail.

Otherwise, I would *strongly* suggest we deprecated MD5. It's broken, it
has been deprecated by Oracle, and should be deprecated everywhere,
final : " The CMU Software Engineering Institute
considers MD5 essentially "cryptographically broken and unsuitable for
further use"."

Those using MD5 have to switch to something that is solid, or move to
plain text instead. All in all, it's pretty much the same thing...
