Comment(by zooko):

 :-)  Well, my current priorities are the Tahoe-LAFS v1.6 release (and the
 RSA 2010 conference). Here is what we need to do next for ECDSA
 implementation in pycryptopp.  Others can help!  One of these items is
 simply to do a code review and apply a patch!

 http://allmydata.org/trac/pycryptopp/ticket/30# release EC-DSA
 http://allmydata.org/trac/pycryptopp/ticket/3# serialize ecdsa keys
 without the fluff
 http://allmydata.org/trac/pycryptopp/ticket/2# choose+implement EC-DSA
 KDF: deterministic generation of private key from small seed

 If we are going to us HKDF-Poly1305:
 http://allmydata.org/trac/pycryptopp/ticket/33# implement Poly1305 or VMAC

 If we are going to use semi-private keys:
 http://allmydata.org/trac/pycryptopp/ticket/13# DSA "semi-
 private"/intermediate keys
