The fingerprint and the MDC both use SHA-1 hardwired.

We should really start thinking on how to switch to a different hash
algorithm.  The question is whether sha-256 is really that much more
secure.  From my understanding it has not been developed as a
replacement for SHA-1 but to meet the requirements of AES and to
extend DSA.
