Noone will want to export OpenSSH crypto from the US since it is available
from a number of other places in the world already.  Quite contrary, OpenSSH
crypto has been _imported_ into the US from one of these other places.

But, hypothetically, if you wanted to export OpenSSH crypto from the US I'm
sure you'd have all sorts of interesting legal problems, IANAL however.
