in thread Keeping a password safe.

I understand this is an example only, but MD5 is no longer considered cryptographically secure, and new projects probably shouldn't be using it. There are several alternatives, and thanks to CPAN they're just about as easy to use as MD5. Nowadays it seems the general consensus is leaning toward SHA2-256 or SHA2-512, or somethig from AES (Rijndael).
