but if code changed anything
they'd make it illegal

@noemi Not to take your post overly seriously (and suck the fun out of it), but some code is or has been illegal. In the USA, code that defeats DRM for example. And I don't know the full state of legality on cryptography today, but at least at one time, an attempt was made to tightly regulate cryptography in the USA as well. It happens. :/
