You can tell I read oldest->newest :-)

I'm pretty sure I have an older ufc-crypt under a freebsd license, I'll have to
look about.  ITMT, I really believe that the SSL library (which nearly everyone
would link in) is probably a better choice, since OpenSSL has the des methods.

Does that sound 'saner' to everyone ... using OpenSSL which we will be using
within Apache (and other foos: daemons or clients) anyways?
