Has anyone checked out the PGP public key encryption package posted to
alt.sources?  I'd be interested to hear any evaluation of this implementation.

	Is this really RSA, and if so, are people going to be expected
to get licenses before they use it?

THIS IS A DISCLAIMER. That's because there is always some IDIOT out there who
sees a posting by me, gets the idea that I have an inside line on corporate
policy, and gets bent out of shape. If you can figure out how someone smart
enough to slobber on a keyboard can make such a leap of faith, please tell me.
