Look, the crypto restrictions in the U.S. are likely unconstitutional
anyway. Just don't flout them and be reasonable in the ways you get
around them and no one will get in trouble. The last thing the
U.S. government wants is to actually bring the test case into the
courts that causes the whole thing to be thrown out, and arguing that
you can't distribute algorithms would probably cause them that sort of
problem in court.
