OpenSSL is a general-purpose cryptography toolkit which includes such
goodies as Blowfish, CAST, DES, Diffie-Hellman, DSA, RC[245], and..oh yes,
RSA :-)

Whee! Great news!

Once you get the legal issues sorted out, we can finally merge the
internat and freefall crypto repositories so there's just one source of
crypto. I think the only (legitimate) difference between the two is a
single file, rsa_eay.c, which contains the actual RSA crypto on internat.
We can put that into its own cvsup collection (cvs-crypto-rsa) which won't
be installed by default (and won't build anyway for USA_RESIDENT=="YES"),
and which mirrors don't have to replicate. I think that should take care
of all of the legal issues.
