There is now such a branch on GutHub. There are a couple of issues that
popped up due to the new alignments and self tests. This is probably a
good thing and I'll look into them but right now I don't really get how
things are supposed to go together. Take for example BFEgg:

It fails with "FAILED (binary)" because the binary is misaligned. But
that is because fmt_default_binary just pass the ciphertext pointer, so
if something is misaligned it's not because of BFEgg - or is it? And
who/what says BFEgg needs alignment in the first place? I believe it
doesn't.
