Do separate aes128_ctx, etc, with smaller allocation for subkeys.

<p class='wish'>
Consider doing the same separation for camellia (and possibly
cast128), which also use fewer subkeys for shorter key sizes.

Don't require initialization of *dst_length for base*_decode_update.

Rename gcm "iv" to "nonce". Keep old names for backwards
compatibility.
New DSA interface, with a separate struct dsa_params.

Drop key size argument from <tt>nettle_set_key_func</tt>.

<p class='should'>
Use the nettle_cipher abstraction only for block ciphers (in
particular, exclude arcfour). Use a const for the ctx argument to
nettle_crypt_func.
</p>
<p class='wish'>
Consider making a public interface similar to nettle_aead? With
the above change, it can't use nettle_crypt_func.
