Yes, there are already a lot of implementations of cryptographic
algorithms floating around. My main concern is that they all have
different APIs. Not easy for application programmers to choose the
right lib.

Yes. That's why I would like to bring together all the isolated
efforts and focus on creating a unified API.

Ciao, Michael.
