Hi Tamara (et al)

After having sent off the last email, I checked out today's FreshMeat
and found a program called mcrypt sitting there which does pretty much
everything you want.  It's supposedly compatible with crypt(1) but I
assume this is somehow related to commandline arguments since it uses
much better ciphers like 3DES, IDEA and Blowfish.  It's also GPL. :)

I'm downloading it as I type. :)


I'm not trying to give users what they want, I'm trying to give them
freedom, which they can then accept or reject. If people don't want
freedom, they may be out of luck with me, but I won't allow them to 
define for me what is right, what is worth spending my life for.
