For me this is the most important part. In the doc should be

- an overview of the crypto options available
- a mentioning of the tweetnacl default being used
  - btw I think no auto detection and no auto-usage of libsodium was
discussed. libsodium has to be activated by an explict switch like
- and a recommendation for binary distributions to use libsodium,
because of the easier security updates for them

In order to avoid surprises and get a "robust build"

kind regards
