Okay based on their answer, `EVP_get_cipherbyname(ocipher)` will fail for aes-{128,192,256}-ccm because the NID is not registered in `crypto/evp/c_all.c` because of an oversight that will be fixed shortly and will fail for `chacha20-poly1305` because they do not yet have an EVP implementation for it, only an EVP_AEAD implementation.

So the

from the patch I made in !845 is still needed, but the first part of the patch I made is fixed by this PR.
