Because it's a shovel. :)

Seriously though,
(note the country - Australia) is implemented using a locally written version
of crypt. And because our laws on crypto are like those in the USA (i.e,
people not in Australia can't legally get it), it's not exportable.

That way, if people want to use my machine, they are free to, but they
should follow all of the instructions posted around on various lists that
refer to 'usr/src/domestic' & 'USA' and read it as 'usr/src/domestic' and

FWIW: When I setup src/domestic, I just mirrored (by hand) all of src/domestic
off sun-lamp _except_ the actual crypt.c & crypt.3 functions (because the
Makefiles were kinda useful...)
