Oh, and while I don't mind if people want to talk about this on the  
tahoe-dev list, it doesn't have that much to do with tahoe-lafs  
anymore, now that we're done comparing Tahoe-LAFS to Cleversafe and  
are just arguing about the cryptographic design of Cleversafe.  ;-)   
So, it seems quite topical for the cryptography list and only  
tangentially topical for the tahoe-dev list.  I've also been enjoying  
the subthread about the physical limits of computation that have  
spawned off on the cryptography mailing list.  Ooh, were you guys  
considering only classical computers and not quantum computers when  
you estimated that either 2^128, 2^200 or 2^400 was the physical  
limit of possible computation?  :-)
