In all the discussion here, the thing that
strikes me is that we need to stop using secrets
as proof of anything. Seems that Chaum's
credentials without identities are a much better
approach, and I'd guess that his patents
are long expired.

By now you've probably seen Lucky's party announcement,
but they actually expire next week.
17-year and 20-year patent lifetimes are *way* too long.
