Since Pharo has a system package called "System-Hashing" I was wondering if anyone sees a reason why CRC should not be part of that package. That would also allow the Zip implementation to use the system CRC function (at the moment Zip implements its own CRC check).

No idea but your suggestion makes sense :)

May be ask ron teitelbaum since I guess that ron worked on it.
