Python, Rust and C performance doing MD5

I put a performance comparison between Python, Rust and C doing MD5 calculations, here.

Interestingly, CPython and Pypy came out on top, even beating gcc and clang.

Granted, CPython and Pypy are probably calling the highly-optimized OpenSSL, but it's still noteworthy that sometimes Python can be pretty zippy.
