Perhaps one of the patches was written by me - but I don't mind which
version (my patch or Inoue-san's patch or another) will be adopted to
the future version of GnuPG or libgcrypt.

However, I have a question about PSS.  According to the Appendix D of
PKCS#1 (RFC3447), the University of California claims the patent for
PSS.  What do you think about this?
