Not sure whether we want to go beyond BouncyCastle at all.

That's my current thinking, yes.  Provide a stream-lined API that
makes it easy to sign a file or verify a signature.  Throw in some
key-management if we feel like it.

If that API doesn't have any dependencies on bouncycastle it is going
to make up a nice facade for people who'd prefer to use cryptix or any
other library as a bonus.
