	Yeah, it's pretty scary stuff. I have an apache-ssl-us var
doing the same thing and was concerned that not releasing the source
would make me upset, given that I stress source so much for security
reasons. Nothing he can do about it, but I suppose it's good to hear
that mine and everyone else's ranting and Ian's work is doing some
good in the world.

appropriate credit line in there.)
