In pursuit of my original proposal, which is that we pursue crypto
development by the legal though awkward means that are available to us,
I've created a majordomo list,

The purpose of this list will be to develop the tools needed to have
international cooperation in this arena, probably starting with the use of
postal mail to email gateways. This should not be problematic for US
residents at least as it's already being used by the PGP community.

Chris says that we should work to change the laws rather than exploiting
loopholes. My feeling is that the laws are rapidly moving away from crypto
and the sooner it is made widely available and easy to use the sooner we
have a chance of reversing that trend. The sooner we get the genie out of
the bottle, the better.
