I personally don't believe non-US is going away until the entire world
suports software patents.  Crypto is not the only reason for it's

For the rest, I'll remove IDEA, DSS & LUC from the upstream tarball,
put that in non-us/main for now, package the IDEA code separately and
put it in non-us/non-free
