Hi, I did a super-quick review of your commit (well I almost didn't look
at the actual code yet, just the diffstat). Some comments before a
possible merge to our main repo:

* You have two files in the base directory (parent of src).
Pomelo_testvectors.txt perhaps should go to the "src/unused" directory,
where we keep some reference stuff that are not used for building. And
pomelo.c - this is a larger, not used variant of src/pomelo.c? It should
probably go to src/unused too, or dropped. The files that are actually
used (eg. src/pomelo.c) could instead have comments added with links
(web urls) to original source.

* This is poorly documented, but you can actually rename src/pomelo.c to
src/pomelo_plug.c and drop *all* changes to! Our "MacGyver
plugin system[tm]" will take care of it. Unlike format plugs that need
some special #ifdef stancas inside, there is nothing special about a
non-format plugin except the name ending in "_plug.c". The accompanying
src/pomelo.h does not need a rename.
