I believe so, yes.

There's been interest off and on over the years in a Boost.Crypto library.
So far, there's been either (a) a lack of people willing to put in the work, or (b) disagreement on the interface.

A set of hash implementations would be a nice start for this.
I'll try to take a look at your code this week.
