Rereading the old thread, if there are not any new options I will use
gcrypt with some sort of FFI.  Thank you!

I need to automatically generate unique ids for Haunt’s Atom feeds and
for the CSS of a non-JavaScript sortable HTML table (i.e. multiple
variants of the same table between which one can switch with CSS).
The automatic generation should be deterministic so the page does not
change when rebuilding the Web site.  That is why I wanted to use
UUID3 for it.  I thought security need not be considered here but who
knows, maybe I should just use a secure hash instead of a UUID.
