Review comment:
       I wanted to group together the set of constants related to the encryption cipher. 
This could be a namespace instead of an empty struct, but I don't think there is a huge difference.
 I don't want to add extra complexity now to support a multi-cipher use case which will probably
not happen, especially with libsodium, which hides the cipher from the user and may change
it in future versions.
