Eh, you mean that pgp is not FREELY AVAILABLE? I am probably wrong,
but I believed that it was??  I know, that these versions are meant for
non-commercial use - is that the problem?

What about approaching about this as the plan seems to be with the
RSA secret code!

At least the pgp code is not secret!  The techniques are well known. Who
could prohibit a free reference implementation f.ex. outside US?  Why
could that not be freely imported to US? What is the problem in US?
RSA again?

I'm probably terrible wrong!
