I think it would be really excellent to begin work on something like 
crypto-elm (a la crypto-js). It will take a lot of work, but I find it a 
sorely needed foundational library for many other elm libraries I'd like to 
build out.

A byte array seems like the only option viable in this particular case. 
(Please correct me if I'm mistaken).
