where is this documented? its not in the javadocs.

anyway, we shouldn't be doing this:
* this algorithm might not exist on J2ME etc (still java), you need to
install an extra crypto add-on.
* we shouldnt start up an expensive PKI infrastructure on mac os X,
including spawning a new thread, just to hash a string. thats absurd.
* we pay all these costs ... for md5! its not even a good hash!
