In what way would your module be an improvement over Crypt::Twofish and
Crypt::Twofish2 already available on CPAN? The former is already
packaged for debian as libcrypt-twofish-perl

I would very much recommend an API which at least follows the features
required by Crypt::CBC, even if your module have an internal optimized
CBC mode. This would make the module familiar to other perl programmers.
