Probably should have read the first message more carefully ... :)

Anyways, I don't know if PGP would be necessary, we wouldn't be
sending anything critical, I'd hope. The implementation method is a
different matter entirely, something to be discussed sometime in the

What is the general consensus? Do we have the blessing of the
Powers-That-Be to go ahead and try to break this kernel and all kernels
