       The purpose of this module is to	collect	and manage as many SSL/TLS
       cipher suites as	possible.  It manages lists of cipher suites, can
       filter all by tags or names, can	add new	cipher suites to an cipher
       list object or delete suites from the list. Cipher(lists) can be
       converted in their binary constant, so that they	can be used in a
       SSL/TLS handshake and vice versa.

       For best	performance (and memory	usage) the cipher lists	are managed as
       ordinary	hashrefs, they are not objects.	Only the cipher	lists are

       Checked at

       Selects all cipher suites available

   ->new_by_name($name1, $name2, @names, ...)
       Selects ciphers by their	name (short or long).

       Duplicates are not removed!

       Returns all Ciphers, selected by	one or more Tags. The list of tags can
       be one or more arrays or	arrayrefs or any combination.

       Duplicates are not removed!

       Returns all Ciphers, selected by	one or more codes as hex string.

       Duplicates are not removed!

       Removes duplicates from the cipher suites.

       Old Version: Important: this sub	changes	the order of the ciphers.
       They are	in more	or less	random order!

       New: order not changed

   cipher_spec(	[ $version ] )
       Returns the SSL/TLS cipher_spec for the (internally stored) cipher
       list.  Returns the cipher_spec as binary	string.	2 bytes	per cipher,
       compatible with SSLv3 and TLS, NOT SSLv2.

       If optional argument is < 0x0300	(SSLv3), conitnues with

       Dies, if	there is a SSLv2 only cipher in	SSLv3+ mode.

       Returns the SSL/TLS cipher_spec for the internal	cipher list as SSLv2
       cipher spec.

       Returns the cipher_spec as binary string. 3 bytes per cipher,
       compatible with SSLv2,  SSLv3/TLS.

       Returns the SSL/TLS ciphers for a binary	cipher_spec.

       Parameter: the cipher_spec as binary string, 3 bytes per	cipher.

       Returns a list of ciphers in list context, and an arrayref in scalar

       The same	as "new_by_cipher_spec", but with a SSLv2 cipher spec (3 bytes
       per cipher!)

   ->add( @ciphers | $ciphers_ref | $obj )
       Takes one or more ciphers, refernces to a list of ciphers or cipher
       objects and adds	them to	the ciphers.

   ->remove( @ciphers |	$ciphers_ref | $obj )
       Removes one or more ciphers from	the ciphers list. Ciphers are
       identified by the code, so if there are duplicate ciphers by code with
       different name etc, they	are removed too.

       Ans all duplicates are removed too.

       Takes one or more ciphers, refernces to a list of ciphers or cipher

   ->remove_first_by_code( $code | @codes )
       Removes the first cipher	from the cipherlist, which matches a $code.
       Each code from the list is only removed one time!

       # TODO: Check performance for most common cases!

   ->remove_all_by_code( $code | @codes	)
       Removes all ciphers from	the cipherlist,	which matches a	$code.

       Orders the cipher list by the code.

       TLS Ciphers (2 bytes) are prefixed with 00.

       Get all cipher Names.

       In List context:	returns	an array of all	names.

       In Scalar context: returns all names, separated with space.

   ->split_into_parts( [ $ssl_version ]	[, $max_bytes] )
       Some (broken) SSL/TLS implementations recognize only a limited number
       of cipher suites	in the handshake. To handle this, this method creates
       an array	of CipherSuite-Objects with parts of the original list.

       Optional	parameter $ssl_version is the SSL-Version string; default is
       $SSL3 and up.

       Optional	parameter $max_bytes is	the maximum number of bytes of a
       resulting cipher_spec; default: 146.

       TODO: which default max bytes?
