That might well be a better solution. But there's a trade-off; it
makes it easier to use, but slows down the execution time. Of course,
for most applications a single secret sharing and an opening is

Another potential issue is that some runtimes may require prss in
order to share and/or open values. That would give us kind of a
chicken-egg problem.

Anyway, the best solution may be to let it up to each runtime to
decide what to do on startup and which parameters to use.
