That would be great.  It'd also be a double-edged sword...  A bit like
microprogramming: how do you validate that black box?  But mostly a
good thing, I think, and we're going to need it if we're ever to
replace AES.  In the long-term, as one ciphersuite wins over the rest,
algorithm agility will become harder and harder to actually use as
