Because just making the thing RSAREF-using violates the license AFAIK.

Lets see...  RSAREF is slower and violates pgp license, but pgp5-i is faster
and violates a patent who says you're free to use RSA non-commercially
provided you use their version of it.

If you can't win for losing, use the faster one.  If I'm wrong about the
copyright, you may consider making that RSAREF version.  Better yet, since
RSAREF cannot be exported, but is in non-us since somebody already HAS, let
someone outside the US do it, safer that way.
