FYI, I see nothing on the web page of this Michigan company 
to determine if they have respected the IP restrictions on
RC5, MDC2, IDEA etc.  Also the openssl project does not mention
them as a distribution or mirror, so it doesn't satisfy the
criteria for having openssl distribute (or endorse) a binary
distribution.

If openssl added this to the contrib section, or cross referenced
a list of binary distributions / mirrors, that would satisfy
my concerns and enable us to distribute mod_ssl sans ???eay32.dll,
for the user to obtain seperately.
