Very cool.  It looks like they've really listened to the industry's

One thing that worries me is they weren't very strong on the export controls
point... though they allow unrestricted _import_ of encryption.  Golly gee,
thanks.  It does look pretty good for exporting though -- I guess they were
deliberately careful with that in order to avoid upsetting the US.  In
particular, we still can't export encryption that we imported from the US :)

It's good to see, though.  I've never had confidence in government before. 

Have fun,
