Thank you for a really good and useful answer. I hope some of that
can make it into the FAQ.
If I understand you correctly then the situation is this:
- if you want longer symmetric cyphers, then you are asking for
something that is a mathematical and physical nonsense.
- if you use longer RSA keys, you are being unduly paranoid, and
asking for something that would make life awkward for mobile devices,
etc, but not asking for something that is a complete nonsense -- just
I think it would be good if the FAQ managed to capture that.
