Yeah, I wrapped Crypto++ for a previous project, and it was a disaster -
Crypto++ itself is 'well written', meaning it uses lots of operator
overloading, and templates, and skads of C++ garbage which has the
'amusing' effect of making you have to recompile for redhat and debian.

I'd say Crypto++ is well written, but doing it in C++ was a bad idea.
