Sure. With pleasure. Though I have the feeling that it may be too soon to
break out the champagne. AFIK, you still need to implement reverse DNS
checks to ensure the requestor isn't a foreign government. Simplistically
spoken, it doesn't require many pages of regs to convey that crypto can be
legally exported. The new regs are of amazingly nested complexity. I am not
certain a truly thorough analysis of the new regs exists at this time. [Yes,
I read the EFF/EPIC/ACLU press release, the regs themselves, and the various
comments on the Net].
