Replacing the default hashing algorithm


I need to be able to replace the way passwords are hashed and atm there is no such easy way.
There are both security and commercial advantages to this: from a security perspective, people can easily replace the default with something else (fi using the Crypto package from TMS) and commercially, again, the crypto package from TMS sounds like a good complement that you might use.


It would be good to have PBKDF2 and/or BCrypt built in, and also the ability to set the number of hashing iterations to use.

Yes, either bcrypt built in or an easy way to plug in an alternative hashing mechanism.
