#925: Requesting merge of opaque branch

 The branch topic/matthias/opaque contains the implementation of the new
 opaque type. The following types no longer use an internal `index:any`
 type but instead a type-safe abstraction via `opaque of T`:

 - md5
 - sha1
 - sha256
 - entropy

 Moreover, all these new types are serializable and can be sent over the
 network. E.g., one node can start the incremental hash/entropy
 computation, send the opaque type to another node where it finishes.

 All tests pass locally and on Jenkins (minus two that also fail on
