My end goal is to have the user use transparently the fastest implementation 
available to their architecture/cpu providing they use the high level module. 
I've uploaded the cpu package which allows me to detect at runtime the aes 
instruction (and the architecture), but i've been distracted in implementing 
fast galois field arithmetics for GCM and XTS mode (with AES).

So any contributions going in this direction is more than welcome.
