This is not what I understood from our last thread... So I
bothered FSF for nothing.

Well... I wish you good-luck in convincing all that you own
the enlightenment, you are the only one who know how to
integrate crypto tokens and applications...

I still don't understand why you use PKCS#1, PKCS#8, X.509,
CMC, S/MIME and more... Why don't you invent some
replacements for these too?

All people need to adjust their software to your proprietary
solutions... Well, I won't.

I believe the free software world is about providing user
with a choices, and not eliminate them. I do as much as I
can in order to provide these choices. Standards are at the
base of this belief, without standards, there can be no choice.

Now, when understanding your attitude, I will stop bothering
you with this issue.
