I guess that is a GPL issue.  They don't want any GPLed stuff for the
core.  However, there are other implementations and in particular a
signature verification tool is pretty simple.  It might even make sense
to write one stripped down for the Ed25519 signature verification.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
