But, are we really going to want 76 bit and 72 bit rc4? I think
there might be three, maybe four key sizes, and that is it. I know
that there are two: 40 bit and 128 bit. Are there really more?
I think that algorithms of differing key sizes are as different from
a policy point of view as different algorithms.
