[REBOL] Password encryption for Apache web-server

I need user authentication on a couple of CGI-scripts, so I learned I need password encryption,
too. I program on Amiga at home and am surrounded by windows and AS/400 at work, so I
can't use the Unix crypt() version of htpasswd (the Apache program that generates user/password
pairs). The Apache manual states that the MD5 version (which I can use on windows) will
work anyway, but I couldn't manage, and it offers less protection anyway.
There are many solutions to my problem (in fact it is *not* a problem for me anymore)...
but, for ease of use and for personal satisfaction, I'd like to have a 100% crypt()-compatible
encoder written in REBOL: after all, it's just text manipulation. One such version would
run on all the 41+ platforms without problems. Unfortunately, I can't afford the luxury
of writing one myself due to time constraints (and who knows if I'm good enough :-),
so I ask you. (((-:
Has one already been written? Will one of you write one (think about the glory :-) ?

That's *exactly* what I was going to suggest.
