Being the idealist that I am, I'd vote for putting the code in the public
domain. If only because it would be in keeping with the fundamental mission
of this project, which is to prove that the US government is being
foolhardy in limiting the strength of encryption software. I'm not in it
for the money, and anybody who is probably should pull out a calculator and
figure out the probability of finding the 1 key in 72 quadrillion..... :)

On a different subject, I'd be willing to help out with a BeOS AAPR version
of the new client, since I assume the MacOS client is already covered.
