Why? I don't actually need the hash object for anything, usually. All
I need is the ByteString, and then I need to learn how to use the
cereal package to get it...

So talking purely about convenience, I would prefer hash :: HashType
-> InputData -> ByteString. That would probably not be extensible
enough, so I'm not sure how to optimally do it.
