Well, to clarify things: From an end user's point of view, it would
have been nice to have an app to play with. I'd like to switch to ECC
too. Mainly, because I think that the guys with the small ... glasses
;-) at NSA can break public key crypto quite easily, and secondly I
like to play with new apps. So, if there is not an app which uses the
ECC lib, that's too bad; I won't bother any further with that lib,
just a matter of lack of time. We really need to change the social
system to a more star trek like system....
