Can anyone on the list answer this question? -
http://crypto.stackexchange.com/questions/11935/how-is-the-md2-hash-function-s-table-constructed-from-pi

The MD2 algorithm (defined in RFC 1319 - http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1319)
has a bunch of constants, a permutation of 256 bytes, that is said (section
3.2) to be derived from the digits of pi.  But there seems to be no record of
how.

Thanks,
Andrew
