Lua on Parrot comes already with several external libraries :
md5 & sha1
These libraries are written in PIR (Parrot assembler) like the whole of
Parrot on Lua.
In the case of md5, the C native implementation comes from libcryto (a
part of libssl), the wrapper is writting at the Parrot level, so it
could be used by any language over Parrot.
