ChaCha20-Poly1305 Cipher

Kevin Herron
Hi all,

I posted this question to GitHub as an issue but I'm reposing here in case that was the wrong place to ask: https://github.com/bcgit/bc-java/issues/554

I see there's already implementations of ChaCha20 and Poly1305, as well as an implementation of TlsAEADCipherImpl (BcChaCha20Poly1305) that brings them together in the TLS module, but there doesn't seem to be a Cipher instance available.

I know support for this is available in JDK 11 but I need access to it on JDK 8 via BC provider for now.

Is this something that is planned or would you be open to a PR implementing it?
