This is like starting a holy war,

In my opinion; they are both hashes ... pick your flavor

Just recently they have found 'collisions; in the md5 equation that opens up a new door for them to possibly be cracked (it is still no easy task).

SHA-1 I do not know about, but consider doubling your encryption.
