Adding an algorithm to openpgpsdk doesn't actually involve coding all
that much. It uses OpenSSL for its crypto, so adding Camellia
basically involves passing a pointer to the Camellia_set_key(),
Camellia_encrypt(), etc, functions within OpenSSL.
Even so, anyone want to give it a whirl? It should take you less than
30 minutes (I've done it already - it's trivial, and not much more
than copying the AES section and doing a search and replace to swap
"AES" for "Camellia"). The only real gotcha is that openpgpsdk
doesn't support Elgamal, so you'll need to make an RSA key to test with.
