I'm assuming that when you say 'the library' you mean
Boost.Functional/Hash. This library's only intent is to provide a
generic hash function for STL-like hash tables. Cryptographic hash
functions are out of the scope for the library and would belong in a
different library altogether.

You'd have to go through the review process.

I expect there would be plenty of interest.
