That's the whole point of our plugin system.  All this is hidden from
the users in other components, they just create a crypter of a specific
type and key size via lib->crypto->create_crypter().  They don't care
what plugin provides it or how it is implemented.  You'll find lots of
examples if you search for create_crypter() calls.
