how can you agree with something with no basis in fact? true, what you say may end up to be the truth, or close to it (or it may not), but how the hell can we make those judgements when we haven't seen any implementation of sm3 or how it performs?
i like the fact it's included, as that's what encourages developers to use new features, but i'll withold judgement on how it performs or how we may or may not benefit from it until there's some actual data...
