It was unclear to me from the conversation with the NSA people what the
law says about the pointer.  While there is potential for someone from the
state department asking the pointer be removed, I don't think you get into
trouble with this.  I think (due to the conservative nature of the U of I
lawyers) that NCSA will not have pointers to patches located outside the
country, and will probably have some html page explaining the export restrictions.

I believe that from what the NSA people said that if anyone inside the US
does the context diffs that would fall under the colaboration part of the 
restrictions.  So it should be developed independantly by someone outside
the USA or Canada (Canadian export laws defer to US laws when dealing with
US products).
