BYOND should include support for SHA-2. The MD5 algorithm is broken and while BYOND applications may not require the most hardened hashing, there's little sense in not including a better algorithm when a free implementation is available.
Aaron Gifford provides a BSD licensed SHA-2 implementation. This license allows the code to be implemented within BYOND as the BSD license is not copyleft.
