    We should specify an interface with which a loadable module,
    developed outside the U.S., could provide crypto functions, and
    other modules or parts of the kernel could elect to use them if
    available.

    Won't work, there are laws that say it is also illegal to export
    anything which "allows non-exportable crypto to be plugged in
    easily".

    There were changes many months ago to Glibc specifically because of
    this problem.
