As noted in the bugreport, your own examples did not compile with your supplied code.
Next time, please test that too.

It is definitely better to have a slower default that works always than a faster one 
that does not let all code compile.

But not problem, please advise on the changes needed to 
a) fix the mentioned example so it actually compiles.
b) Speed up the default hash.

I (or someone else) will be happy to change it.
