The default method for openssl_seal and openssl_open is RC4 which is a weak cipher. For that reason, user should always choose a cipher algorithm (method parameter) explicitly.
The request is to deprecate calling openssl_seal and openssl_open without and method argument (deprecate error message will be printed if the user doesn't supply a method parameter). The method parameter will be then made required in the next major version.
