This is at least as secure as using crypt() and, since the complete
implementation of string_hash() is included with the server (as opposed to
being provided by the local operating system), it's guaranteed to work portably
across all systems.

I haven't done detailed timings to discover which one is (marginally) faster,
but it shouldn't matter much for this use.
