You may be required to register yourself with the government as a person
who uploads crypto software to machines outside the US.  ie, that you
export crypto.  You assume full risk for doing so naturally if Janet Reno
and the FBI booth decide they don't like you.  I personally wouldn't
bother registering with anyone, but then I was exporting PGP under ITAR
penalties 7 years ago.
