Thanks for the patch.
However this is one of those marginal cases where it's
probably not worth the extra option to do this simple adjustment.

At the shell you can do: md5sum < the_file | cut -b1-32
Also if running from another program, one could easily
take the start of the output (accounting for leading backslashes).

So I'd be 70:30 against adding this.
