micalg is a problem by itself: For example it does only allow for one
algorithm.  It is also problematic from the processing model because you
need to do a trial signature to figure out the algorithm which will be
used.  And it is often not correctly set, thus for detached signatures
in streaming mode you may better guess the hash algorithm first.
