I'm not sure whether we want to have a singular implementation into
boost without thinking about the interface issues, e.g. how to
concatenate the execution of two algorithms, and have a general
design for the whole application domain.

Other non-boost libraries seem to already try to address this.

Anyway, we may as well start with one concrete implementation of
an algorithm and expand on that later. We did that with Beman's
min_rand and my random number library as wel.

Oh, btw, the interface should not be std::vector<byte>-based, but
be iterator-based instead.
