SHA-0 and MD5 collision implications

This writeup from Eric Rescorla (which he also posted to the NANOG mailing list) is a great summary of the implications of the recent discoveries of collisions or weaknesses in the SHA-0 and MD5 cryptographic hash algorithms.

Yeah, but everybody already knew SHA-0 was weak. That's why there's SHA-1.

For that matter, everybody knew you can find collisions in MD5. That's why we use SHA-1 for important stuff.

So now, the question is this: Can you find the same collisions in both sets?
