Hi Felipe,

it's good to see more Skein stuff. it's a great crypto hash and one of the few 
remaining candidate for SHA-3.

Have you seen the cryptohash package http://hackage.haskell.org/package/cryptohash ?

I always wanted to expose more skein operations specially the hmac function, but 
never came around to, and maybe it would be good to merge to avoid duplicating 
efforts ?
