I'm sorry for not responding.
I was sure I did because I did a bit of searching
and thought that this was specific to Internet Archive's tools
and so not appropriate for inclusion.

Could you give examples of where you would
find this useful?

I also notice that it was easy enough to
write base32 wrappers for these tools:

md5sum ... |
perl -anle 'use Convert::Base32;\
$h32=uc(encode_base32(pack("H40", $F[0]))); print "$h32  $F[1]";'
