Sign me up, Hiawatha. I'll send mail back, too.

And as long as I have your attention, here's another thing that 
occurred to me.

Hawaii's Rep. Abercrombie yesterday suggested that the mere 10 years 
in prison that await crypto exporters aren't nearly enough. Sending 
PGP abroad, he says, ought to be punished with far more than that. 

Fair 'nuff. I wonder how many people might be willing to sign a 
petition stating they have exported crypto - something to deserve 10 
years in the slammer? Surely 1,000 people or more off the lists 
represented here? I suppose Vincent Cate's crypto export page would 
give people a feel for how it works before they move their way up to 
the big leagues?

Cate, of course, is at: http://online.offshore.com.ai/arms-
trafficker/

While you're all pondering possible civil disobedience, here's my 
public key.
