Sorry for the delay in responding. No, it doesn't work right now. I did
test this out several years ago but the problem with SHA2 is the length
of the resultant hash. There's no problem creating and sending such a
MAC but the other side needs to be changed to be able to properly handle
the resulting MAC. There are plans to change the code to properly deal
with this and other types of hashing algorithms.
