I have the bulk of an ECC implementation for Weierstrass curves (over
large characteristic fields) sitting on my disk. I have some code for
Edwards curves too. I need to bring this into shape before releasing
it, but it's in the pipeline.

Other stuff that's in the pipeline is a much faster version of GCM,
and potentially some more ciphers.
