Someone asked me about [1] and whether the IETF ought make
any changes as a result.

My initial reaction was that 2^172 is still more than 3DES
but its probably worth asking here.

Any CFRG thoughts on this development or more generally if
there are changes with other cryptographic functions
are welcome.

No need for an I-D, some mail is fine and we could take it
from there if there's something to do.
