It's the same situation for all of us. The 4.73 communicator package
doesn't get you 128 bit encryption, and requires the extra step of
replacing the 56 bit binary with the 128 bit binary from the tar.gz
installation. For what it's worth, that changelog is for the
netscape-base-473 package. That package doesn't install any Netscape

root@newdebian:~# dpkg -L netscape-base-473

I don't know if there are any plans to package the 128 bit version....
