Not to the best of my knowledge.  I have dealt with reading and writing
a variety of legacy Excel documents of different versions, from 97 to
2003, and so far this algorithm has been used ´╗┐consistently across these
versions.  Daniel Rentz of Sun, who is their Excel file format guru,
even mentions that the same hash algorithm was used in Excel 95.
