I am not going to keep the name maxlen.  I was/am considering calling
it limit or maxlength (yes, same as what some existing external
modes use, so the declaration and assignment to that variable would need
to be dropped from them eventually).  Another possible name is
cipher_limit, and we could also have cipher_case and cipher_8bit
(Booleans corresponding to the FMT_* flags).
