Due to spam-like comments on -cafe I hadn't been subscribed for a while
and missed your cryptohash discussion!  Particularly:

I've been working on a new crypto library specifically to provide a
unified API for packages implementing cryptographic algorithms.  You can
see the discussions on libraries at haskell.org [1] [2].  Please feel free
to take a look, comment, contribute, and hopefully move to the
interface.  I should be finishing up BlockCipher modes and adding hash
tests soon.
