Let's discuss this to the extent we can, and come prepared to talk about similarly related (non-SHA1/SHA2) algorithm issues to fill in any gaps in the time slot.   I'm sure there are things, like ECC, that we can discuss.

Is it used anywhere on the web at the moment?

You would need to file a bug in Bugzilla suggesting support. However, there are high standards that need to be met by new algorithms.
