Ironclad cryptography library for Emacs Lisp?

I like the Ironclad library for Common Lisp. Out of curiosity, has anyone implemented this library in their Emacs Lisp project? While researching this question, I suspected there would be too much work to make it compatible with a pure Emacs Lips project, but a hybrid Elisp and CL project might also be an option for what I need to do.

Some of the functionality of ironclad is built into Emacs through the secure-hash

and functions md5

. has more information.

These functions are written in C. I don't know for sure, but it seems like the slow speed of Emacs Lisp and the small fixnums would be a real obstacle to doing this job directly in pure elisp.
