You're missing my point, which is that _I_ have a requirement to
redistribute GNU Classpath with no export-restricted software.  What's
good enough for the FSF is not good enough for me.  It would nice if
there was a convenient way of doing this.  Merging GNU Crypto into GNU
Classpath without regards to this issue is moving in a bad direction for
me (and perhaps others).
