AFAIK hash() or function calls in generall aren't a feature of unlang. 
Maybe the wiki page is listing pseudo-code?

You want something like:

if (User-Name =~ /..:..:..:..:..:../) {

specific about what the two incoming requests you want to distinguish 
look like, I can be more specific in a suggestion ;o)
