Installed headers cannot use âpragma #onceâ.

This needs some alignment declaration.

push/finish is usually update/final.

To be more general, the context would have to be allocated on the
heap, deallocation and clone functions would be required, and the
functions need to return error values.  Some hardware acceleration
might need a larger state than 104 bytes.
