	I share your opinion, but as you probably red in my last posting the 
available MD5 implementations are not performing well enough for using 
them. I used the RFC reference implementation coded in JScript and its 
really slow, so I decided to just use an external program which works 
really fast as its written in C. Using an external program is easy, as 
we can use any kind of checksum checking when its available as command 
line program. I will try your link, and report my opinions.

	Despite this, I don't understand why windows still doesn't have any 
native MD5 implementation. Any unix has it on board.

	Maybe someone wants to port wpkg to C# which has an MD5CryptoProvider 
as I've seen on the web...
