With edigist we made it possible to register without exposing your 
password to the server. If MD5-Digest really is simular to what edigest 
was going to be, it should be possible to do the same. However, I doubt 
that would be possible "plain" x:data. If iq:register is going to be 
deprecated we better have something to replace it!
