Well, as some of you may already know, I and some of my fellow 
developers no longer have our 4th Amendment rights (protection from 
search and seizure for those of you who live outside the US).  I 
don't know what the immediate effects will be for the project, other 
than that I may have to make sure binary releases are done all in one 
sitting use a fresh download of the source (may seem a little silly, 
but I'd rather be silly than release binaries with bad stuff in 
them).  If you read the story on how this got passed, similar 
procedures could see anti-crypto laws passed through, though I think 
after this it will be some time before the House will stand for this.
