Yeah, siphash is probably the sanest thing to use.

How bad would it be to use HalfSipHash on 32-bit architectures?

On a 32-bit machine, the full siphash is pretty expensive - big
constants, and lots of 64-bit shifts. And 32-bit machines also tend to
mean "slow machines" these days.

I suspect there's little point in worrying a ton about the 64-bit key,
considering that I think the *input* is generally more guessable than
the output or the key.
