I think it's already covered by the library. every module has a
"hashlazy" (for the lack of better name) alongside "hash".

hash takes a strict bytestring and hashlazy takes a lazy bytestring, so for
example opening a huge file with Data.BS.Lazy.readFile that you pass to hashlazy
is fully supported.
