Thanks a lot for your advice and the link. I know I have to implement
new crypt methods, but I hope
my code is written in a way this will be straight forward. A lot of
other implementations I've seen are like a haystack.
(a lot of defines in the code where you can handle things different by
just using specific functions/callbacks which handle
library (libgcrypt or openssl) specific things).

I will look into your code. Thanks again.
