Actually... Having gone through the process of getting an export
license, all I can say is AAAARRGRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!

Technically, you MUST GET AN EXPORT LICENSE FOR ANY ENCRYPTION. This even
includes simple cyphers (e.g. rot13). What it boils down to is that
"exportable" encryption still does not entitle you to export without an
export license; it only makes it possible to get one.

The problem is that an export license typically only applies to a single
application and can take months (or years) to get. It's a hassle. I
would suggest going with the foreign server approach (a la kerneli.org)
first.
