Of course it sucks. It even uses elliptic curve crypto with only 113
bits. OK, that's only for key exchange so it doesn't suck so much.
Other than that...

The artist currently known as Rob has set up shop and is going into
the software development business. If anyone needs non-sucky crypto
implemented, or any quality software that incorporates advanced
mathematical algorithms, you know who to call.
Will code for food, ideally in areas such as:
* Number theory and algebra, multi-precision arithmetic, primality
testing, finite fields, number fields, fast polynomial computations,
* Cryptography, arithmetic aspects and key generation for public-key
methods such as RSA and ECC,
* Numerical algorithms: precise mathematical library functions, IEEE 754
and high-precision floating point,
* Signal processing: FFT, DCT, image compression, JPEG, wavelets.
