I don't particularly like the notion of XOR on a bytestring. The
bytestring is not a number and it does not make much sense to bitwise
xor such a string. I'd rather have a type specifically tailored for
doing crypto-style computations and then use it. Such that the
underlying implementation can be repa, bytestring,
supermegavectorizationistic, or something completely different.
