This function is simple enough that it can be documented and made
public, if people find it useful.

BTW, how does that acceleration work? Would it be possible/practical to
write a function matching the current _nettle_sha1_compress.

These macros are really intended for internal use only. I'd prefer to
not export any interfaces like that. If functionality like this should
be exported at all, I'd be more comfortable with a function interface
for doing these things.
