I'm just wondering; in what manner is Rijndael supported? I see no mention
of it in the key generation. Is it used for encrypting the private key?

I may be confused about this, but the way I understand it one algorithm is
used to encrypt/decrypt actual content, and one algorithm is used to encrypt
the private key with a passphase.

Also, does Rijndael support arbitrary key sizes? I've seen horrifying
statements that it supports "256 bit keys" (and similar) which would
indicate that it does *not*.
