*sigh* Never mind this bit, I just re-re-read a later part of the thread
where you said that it was possible to generate a DSA2 key that can use a
full 256 bit hash.
I'm still curious about the issue of whether the hash firewall issue makes
a "significant" difference or not though.
If you're never wrong, you're not trying hard enough
