Carl noted that "you can't do padding until you know how bit the
modulus is".  I think that we should not require one algorithm to
know the parameters of the preceding or following algorithm, so 
let's just add the length of the output as an additional parameter
if that is needed in the padding. E.g.
	(public-key md5 (pkcs1 1024) (rsa (&n <1024-bit modulus) (e &03)))
