in thread hash collision DOS

I'd suggest benchmarking how fast Perl finishes its test suite. Hashing is so pervasively used within Perl that any significant difference is sure to become obvious.

Also I'd strongly suggest that you add the ability to add a random seed to the hash, which should be generated by Perl on every run. As this thread explains, that is needed to stop a user DOS attack, which is a potential remote exploit in a web application.
