Hey, the NSA meddle with *many* US software companies that have any
likelyhood of shipping anything resembling crypto, even Microsoft, so
it's not much of a reference.

As for how good a job they do, consider how badly they botched the
crippling of export versions of Netscape (can you say Fortify?).

I doubt that they care nearly as much for security of the "you can't
hack into it" variety.
