Sure.  I just wrote a small readme file and put it on
an web server:

Actually the patch is small and trivial, because the
"none" cipher support code is still there, it just has
been disabled in the source at various places.

The patch applies to RELENG_6, RELENG_7 and 8-current,
so this is finally on-topic on the freebsd-current list.
