Don't care about it. It is no threat to use AES 256 or AES 128. The
remarkable gotcha is that the old wisdom that a longer key gives a
stronger cipher is not necessarily true.
I am sure others will start a new debate now what to do, but I consider
such a debate more or less academic.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
