Thanks for your advice Ron. I’ll look to SqueakSSL as an example how to integrate the libsodium.so! I was intending providing a separate interface from SqueakSSL, too.
What sort of object would be a SqueakLibSodium?

I wouldn't suggest adding libsodium to it but instead use it as a framework to support the same smalltalk api and then add to it whatever you believe is needed that you don't get from OpenSSL.
