It does, thank you for the insights.

Even if Chimera doesn't implement a JCE provider due to its impractical
nature, do you think it would be possible to reuse the standard Java
types (Cipher, SecureRandom) instead or redefining them? The
implementation could be instantiated directly (Cipher cipher = new
OpensslCipher()) instead of calling Cipher.getInstance().

Another question, will there still be an incentive to use Chimera once
Java 9 with the AES improvements is widely used? Should we consider
Chimera as a temporary solution to the current Java limitations?
