Dan,

That was a problem wit the use of "this" in the crypto code -- it was 
used in anger instead of just in to qualify things.  It is a reference 
to the formula itself, which is not something which I think we should 
keep for general use.
I plan to rewrite the application so that it doesn't use this.  It 
doesn't really need to - it was just interesting way fr expressing 
things at the time.

In other words, instead of saying "This is a certificate" you can say 
"There is a certificate", and that makes it a certficateDocument, no 
big deal.

One doesn't have to say "I hereby declare the bridge open" -- you can 
say "the bridge is open".
