Oh, most definetly! If the options are:

a) Not have Mozilla at all,
b) Only have a cryptoless Mozilla - nothing else,
c) Have all of Mozilla in non-US(with crypto, of course),
d) Have most of Mozilla in main, but with -psm in non-US,

I'd prefer d), and I think most people would. That's what I was asking
Takuo; if it's feasible to seperate the PSM stuff into different
sources, and have everything work. If that's not feasible, then by all
means put it in non-US(if that's where -legal feels it should be).

a neutered version to main, and a crypto version to non-US/main.
Personally, I'm just sick and tired of the BS, and think that waaay too
many users are suffering because of it.
