    I am sorry, I read some other posts that came in after I sent this, one
    which explains the true status of DRM, which I was not aware of. Seems
    to me that it is a super flawed system, far from what it should be.

    Well ... this puts total different weight on the "urge" to put it into
    the kernel, if it is flawed that much.
