Feature #5106: Is MurmurHash overkill?
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5106

Author: Kurt  Stephens
Status: Open
Priority: Low

Target version: 


st.c implements MurmurHash to compute hash table indexes (#hash).  

Simpler hash functions may be appropriate for hash tables, esp. small tables.

Is there a particular reason this hash function was chosen?  Is MurmurHash typically used for check-summing purposes?

Anybody positively adverse to changing it?  If so I won't bother.  Otherwise I might take a crack at it.
