Welcome to mono! :-)

There's implementation of DES, MD5, Rijndael, SHA, Base64 and I've just
done RC2, although I won't commit it until I've tested it under cygwin
on Monday. There's nothing done for TripleDES, DSA or RSA yet, although
someone posted a link a month or so ago to a 'largenum' C# library which
might be useful.  There's some code to get hold of a decent system
random number generator, although I don't know if that is wired up at
all. It would be nice to factor out code to do the various feedback
modes, rather than having seperate version in each block cipher.  It
would make it a lot faster to implement all of the modes too!
