Netscape exports it's 128-bit version now to us, too. So I think
it's no problem to include for example the standard 56 bit-DES for
a simple setkey(), encrypt(), crypt() implementation. Further
enhancements not excluded.

You know the joke: We already use that algorithms since they
are worldwide published in books...
