That code was indeed a mess.  I've incorporated most suggestions from
your cleaned up version (and fixed a bug in it) in trunk r74479.

Have you ever seen __get_builtin_constructor fail in practice?  I can
imagine that packing up a stripped down python interpreter with only a
subset of the hash extension modules would be the only time this would
likely be encountered.

I've changed your code to log an error and continue rather than silently
continue when an expected hash function is not available.  That error
log may be overkill, perhaps we should just leave catching this problem
up to the unittests.
