To be honest, I've barely looked at the hash functions so far. All I've
done is change them to work on compilers without partial specialization.
I'm planning to make improvements, but I'll have to do some research
into the possible alogorithms first. If anyone has an opinions on this,
I'll be very interested.

Certainly. I'll get something done this week.
