Ah, yes, of course. Sorry about that, I missed the part about backports.

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.

To the consumer, cryptography is a shadowy protective entity --
something like Batman -- kind of menacing but on the side of justice,
and endowed with mystic powers.
