It wasn't so much that DESCHALL couldn't export thier clients as that the
organizer wished to completely avoid any crap from the US federal
government a la the harassment of Phil Zimmerman over PGP.  The DESCHALL
clients could have probably been exported legally -- but no one, as far as
I know, made an effort to find out...

BTW, Project Gutenburg IS non-profit...
