Hi Ben,

Is that intended for passphrase callbacks or secret key export?  Would a
flag flagging such a data object holding sensitive data not be better?

BTW, I plan to allow for lager buffers in this function to reduce the
overhead for certain callers which don't work well with small data
blocks.  Thus a new data object flag will anyway be added.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
