I do not think it is a good idea to use RSAREF by default.  My current 
RSA implementation isn't the fastest one but it uses the gnupg mpi
functions and therefore the code is very small.

  ``Finally, if you want to turn PGP into a commercial product and make
  money selling it, then we must agree on a way for me to also make
  money on it.''
This is from the PGP license which imposes this restriction on the
GPL and invalidates the GPL thereby.

I have one box with Windoze95 used for hardware tinkering but I think
I have not swtiched it on for the last months.  I'll better support 
real OSes first.
