I don't have the patch yet, but try out this script. It cannot handle
some options (--warn, --binary, -text), but seems to be compatible. It
uses part before "sum" in executable name to tell digest.

md5sum	- openssl dgst -md5
sha1sum	- openssl dgst -sha1
helloworldsum	- openssl dgst -helloworld

After lunch, I'll have a look at coreutils.
