When I asked DTI about crypto a couple years ago, their response
was "it's open source?  In that case, go right ahead".  Of course, the
usual caveats about not exporting to embargoed countries and not
assisting in the production of WMD still apply, but those restrictions
would apply regardless of whether we ship cryptographic binaries.
