Subject: [boost] Including open source, non-copyright, no warranty in a boost library

Hello, I'm working on refactoring boost::uuids::name_generator to have a
configurable hash algorithm through a template concept. RFC 4122 allows
for two hashing algorithms, MD5 and SHA1. The current implementation only
does SHA1, however I want to add MD5 for completeness (and I want to
prepare for the eventual successor to SHA1 in the next RFC for UUID).

I found an open source MD5 implementation of RFC 1321 at the following
location and I was wondering if there are rules against bringing it into
boost as a detail implementation?
