If you keep crypto out of the kernel you're giving them arguments that
suggest that their laws have an effect. The proper way to fight
crypto laws is to show the control freaks that they _cannot_ control
crypto. The solution is therefore not to keep crypto out of the
kernel, but to have a kernel _with_ crypto. Distributed from outside
the US if needed.
