There is still one fundamental difference between AEAD and ciphers.
Namely that ciphers can operate as you go while AEAD requests must
be done in one lot. So that should make the AEAD code simpler vs.

I think the best course of action for now is to start with sharing
no code and then chop bits off as we see fit.
