[Remember that at the FBI's behest, a House committee approved a bill
(in Sept 1997, if I recall properly) *banning encryption without
backdoors for the Feds*. It may be ancient history now, but I am not
making this up.  --Declan]

This is a very good reason folks should be in favor of upgrading to

encryption of VOIP links.
