Yes, it's a mix of C and C++ because it uses the Nettle cryptographic
engine, which was written in C. The only way to make it pure C++ would
be to switch to a different crypto library, which should be easy since
everything is modular. However, I'm not sure if it's worth the effort.

I didn't understand exactly what you meant about the doxygen docs.

Right now I'm too busy to work on details of Apso implementation, but
I think the natural next steps would be:

- Make the interface and the tests simpler. The text that shows how
  to test Apso shows how convoluted the wole process can be;
- Add support to git, and maybe mercurial
- Add support to some public-key crypto system (RSA was used because
  it was very easy to implement using Nettle)

But you can contribute in any way you like.
