Python module to find the checksum of files

fchksum is a Python module to find the checksum of files. Currently it supports crc32 and md5 checksums.

The advantage of using fchksum over the python md5 and zlib.crc32 modules is both ease of use and speed. You only need to tell it the filename and the actual work is done by C code. Compared to the implementing a read loop in python with the standard python modules, fchksum is approximatly 2.0x faster in md5 and 1.1x faster in crc32.
