s3ql makes just a little use of AES encryption and does so in a pycryptodome-compatible way. Simply updating ebuild deps should allow for a smooth transition over to pycryptodome.

Is this supposed to work out of the box? Because it doesn't seem to work on my system. After upgrading to the 2.33 ebuild that depends on pycryptodome, I get the following error and s3ql is unusable:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python-exec/python3.6/mount.s3ql", line 6, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3161, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3145, in _call_aside
    f(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3174, in _initialize_master_working_set
    working_set = WorkingSet._build_master()
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 666, in _build_master
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 984, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 870, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'pycrypto' distribution was not found and is required by s3ql

I got it to work by manually editing /usr/lib64/python3.6/site-packages/s3ql-2.33-py3.6.egg-info/requires.txt. Maybe this file should be patched by the ebuild?
