Um, that would be really backward IMHO. Does the word allsrc not
imply "All Source Code" to you? I think src-crypto-all and src-nocrypto
are absolute no brainers, as well as how allsrc has just been changed. Why
would you have the default option not include crypto for the seven
countries that can't vs. the rest of the world?
