This is true of 128 bit encryption methods like 3-DES.  As far as I know,
rules were loosened up to allow businesses to export 128-bit VPN clients to
over-seas offices.  Of course, I am not a lawyer, and I have not worked with
encryption utilitities for a couple of years, but...

The ultimate solution is to do as was done with the ssh plugin for Tera
Term, and that's
develope the code elsewhere.  But, why would you hide the transmission of
Bible texts, etc?
