The crypto export thing is a potential problem, but it seems to me that
it has a pretty straightforward solution: host the NEW queue on a
machine outside the US.  Then it may as well be anon-HTTP-accessible as
far as the US government would care.  (Of course, there may be other
reasons not to take the NEW queue public, like the possibility that
something with a non-free license, which doesn't permit that sort of
distribution at all, gets that far.)
