I touched on this in my platform.  Quoting from there:

  I think we could also do a better job of helping our users be secure in 
  the things they do with Debian, by enabling crypto support in more of the 
  applications we ship. Having to build and support both crypto and non-crypto
  versions of some of our key applications has taken a lot of energy that 
  could have gone to better use. That's why I'm such a strong supporter of 
  the effort to move Open Source crypto into US main, and thrilled that we're
  on the verge of implementing the change as I write this text.

Frankly, I hope we have crypto in US main before we have a new DPL elected...
