Well, you are probably right.
Just wondering: can you tell me what's the weakness you found? (I
might learn some cryptology from this...)

Another, not really related, question: Do you know if someone used the
new coroutine-generators in python2.5 as a way to write servers? It
seems to me like something that can make writing servers much easier,
since a function is much more natural than a state machine (that's the
reason I wrote this protocol without twisted).
