Is this something we should ask the authors of the report to consider, or
look at it ourselves?

I haven't done crypto since university... I could take a look, make some
suggestions, but I doubt I would be much help.  Perhaps these guys (Bruce
Schneier and Mudge) could make a better suggestion than I could.  They may
just say "go to IPsec" though...

(BTW Paulo, your english is better than I hear around here...)
