  It's not completely rhetorical---it's to just shut up those what want
others to do the work.  But I mean it---present a working proof-of-concept
that has passed the crypto community and by all means, it'll be worth
talking about then (mostly about hose easy it is to implement across a
variety of languages).  Until then, it's TLS.

  -spc (We've already had one "proof-of-concept" alternative crypto, but it
	was rejected by the person who did it for further study ... )
