it's good to see more Skein stuff. it's a great crypto hash and one of the few
remaining candidate for SHA-3.
Have you seen the cryptohash package http://hackage.haskell.org/package/cryptohash ?
I always wanted to expose more skein operations specially the hmac function, but
never came around to, and maybe it would be good to merge to avoid duplicating
