problems with SHA-1

The problem with SHA-1 is that it is a U.S. Federal Information Processing
Standard, and I don't trust that the U.S. government will not place export
restrictions on it. I'm also wary of U.S. FIPS for the same reason I'm wary
about DES - various spy agencies have to approve the standard, and one wonders
if they know something we don't.
