Thanks, Gary, I appreciate your thoughts.  I'd be interested in seeing the
concerns you mention - is there 

any reference available? It seems to me that all encrypted ISO playback has
been broken right now, and 

hence when the developers get to this, integrating the existing relatively
simple workaround of piping 

through the existing decryption libraries at the server side would meet the
large majority of user cases.
