Ok, I guess this proves I'm still confused :)  The concept is that the
ASF manufactures a "Product" for export from the US.  This is really the
difference between an OEM and the Manufacturer.  A similar case would be
a 802.11 card manufacturer who integrates an Intel chipset; is the BIS's
interest in the OEM manufacturer, Intel?  Or the company who's assembled
the chip into a card?  If you can integrate the answer to those two topics,
Product v.s. Manufacturer, maybe I'd grok this better :)

In the case that the OEM is needed, do we list the

Manufacturer: Apache Software Foundation, OpenSSL Group

as multiple manufacturers when we ship apr-util's crypto?
