I've been myself thinking about adding some crypto to Squeak, and I
will not have any problems as I'm in Argentina, BUT be very careful with
crypto, becouse if crypto is strong it cannot be exported FROM USA (it's
By strong crypto I mean RSA with keys larger than 256 bits (I'm not
sure if it's 256 or what), and many other schems... I'm not sure, but a code
that does weak crypto but can be modified to make strong crypto (by changing a
256 for a 1024) may be exported, again, I'm not sure. Be careful.
