Does this mean that only the encryption software needs to be in binary form,
or that the software hooks also need to be in binary form?

Apache and httpd both have 'hooks' to call the library routine `crypt'
for authentication. Does this mean they have to be distributed as binaries,
and be approved by the Commerce department?
