  I know it's there, too, but because of CL-HTTP's licensing terms (or,
  more precisely, the utter lack thereof), I can't use it, and would have
  some problems if I were to study it.

  incidentally, my MD5 implementation has been working in production mode
  since about 06:30 this morning -- I spent almost 8 hours debugging a
  stupid little typo on the initial context.  its only problem is that it's
  _really_ slow (800 µs CPU per block) and conses like mad because 32-bit
  numbers aren't fixnums.  I'll have to look into that.

  man who cooks while hacking eats food that has died twice.
