AES-GCM is arguably good enough. I wish more effort were invested in
creating a new, modern TLS stack that isn't completely terrible, or
creating a protocol to replace TLS which is built atop CAESAR-style
authenticated stream ciphers.

If I were to try to create a crypto contest, its goal would be to create a
better transport encryption protocol.
