  // Hash is the common interface implemented by all hash functions.
  // Hash implementations in the standard library (e.g. hash/crc32 and
  // crypto/sha256) implement the encoding.BinaryMarshaler and
  // encoding.BinaryUnmarshaler interfaces. Marshaling a hash implementation
  // allows its internal state to be saved and used for additional processing
  // later, without having to re-write the data previously written to the hash.
  // The hash state may contain portions of the input in its original form,
  // which users are expected to handle for any possible security implications.
  // Compatibility: Any future changes to hash or crypto packages will endeavor
  // to maintain compatibility with state encoded using previous versions.
  // That is, any released versions of the packages should be able to
  // decode data written with any previously released version,
  // subject to issues such as security fixes.
  // See the Go compatibility document for background: https://golang.org/doc/go1compat
