Right, in one direction.
Libgcrypt happily accepts AES-128 as an alias for AES. However if we
map the internal identifier back to a name we need to pich one and that
happens to be "AES" for 9 years now. Changing this is an ABI break and
thus not justified.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
