=)  I felt like working off it when I saw it.  it would be fun to copy
it to another language, but maybe what's more important is using keys
in the first place ;p .  i'm trying to use the energy to work on
blockchain stuff, towards prevention destruction of information .  i'm using the
energy to add electrumx backend functionality to bsvup, to make it
easier to connect to personal servers to upload data, which i'll try
to spam about if i fail.

i always say it's good to add a little informatoin towards this stuff
while you have the information active from looking at it and thinking
about it, since other people might have a bigger barrier to
contribute.  i know keepassx automatically clears its passwords out of
the clipboard if the user hasn't, after a short delay.  i've always
appreciated that feature.  i would probably go to the keepassx source
code to figure out how to implement it, myself.
