Thanks a lot!

Most of the encryption algorithms will need some modificaton to work with
CryptoConfig (which I posted yesterday but still haven't seen it on the
list). I will send you the required modifications (related to the 2 static
Create methods).

I was the one posting the link to the BigNum. However I didn't have much
news abut the author. I think that Miguel talked to him (or at least tried
to). These classes would bea great benefit to Mono.
