    I've been thinking along rather similar lines (though not with specific
    reference to bitmover). I think I'm already on the bitmover list.

    The following is a Python RSA implementation. According to the US Government
    posting these four lines makes me an international arms trafficker! Join me
    in civil disobedience; add these lines of code to your .sig block to help get
    this stupid and unconstitutional law changed.
    ============================================================================
    from sys import*;from string import*;a=argv;[s,p,q]=filter(lambda x:x[:1]!=
    '-',a);d='-d'in a;e,n=atol(p,16),atol(q,16);l=(len(q)+1)/2;o,inb=l-d,l-1+d
    while s:s=stdin.read(inb);s and map(stdout.write,map(lambda i,b=pow(reduce(
    lambda x,y:(x<<8L)+y,map(ord,s)),e,n):chr(b>>8*i&255),range(o-1,-1,-1)))

    It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by
    men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot
    be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be
    repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such
    incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can
    guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of
    action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less
    fixed?
