Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

Crypto is not mathematics, but crypto can be highly mathematical,
crypto can use mathematics, but good crypto can be done without a
great reliance on complex mathematics.
