Is Rust's MD5 Slow? Heck no!
To be honest, speed is one of the things I love about Rust, so seeing Rust being blown away by Python (which I also like and use a lot) made me sad. I decided to make this a bit more fair for Rust so I made a very short piece of Rust code to complete this challenge FAST.
