What will @STRENGTH mean in this context?  Will ignore
the distinction between AES256 and AES128?  What does this
do to the @SECLEVEL interface which tries to provide
NIST-compatible bit strengths across multiple features?

Or we just changing the default order, and allowing
@STRENGTH to perturb it back, and @SECLEVEL to prune-away
128 leaving just 256, ...

In other words how does this fit into the larger picture?
