Well, that's more than enough to convince me to give them a trial.
They're more expensive than mypw in the short run, but general purpose
and rekeyable means a lot, and it sounds like they (at least) have a
strong commitment to the open source universe.  Sure, their tool may be
windows-centric at first, but I can't blame them for that -- that's
where a good chunk of their money will come from.  But the open source
community will make even better tools on their own given time and
information, and it sounds like the information required is openly

So I guess I'll visit their site again and buy one or two.  Maybe I'll
see if I can get OPM^* to pay for the OTPT, heh heh...
