No, as you've seen in this patchset, the dynamic dispatch crypto API
can trivially be done on top of Zinc. So each time we introduce a new
primitive to Zinc that's also in the dynamic dispatch API, we
reimplement the current crypto API in terms of Zinc. Check out the two
patches in this series that do this; it's quite clean and sleek.

No, sorry, we intend to maintain the code we've written. But I am
amenable to taking a tree-route into upstream based on whatever makes
most sense with merge conflicts and such.
