Triple DES should be disabled for the 1.0 release, since the code we
have is nothing like how it will be done for Real. In fact, we may not want
to distribute the Triple DES directories. The same goes for the
SHA hash algorithm, although I think that's much less likely to change....

I would object to pulling directories out this late, but
if zeroing would be reasonable--in cryptoconf.c or something.

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: tytso
State-Changed-When: Sat Nov 23 00:20:18 1996
State-Changed-Why: I've removed removed the configuration options for
3DES, and removed the #defines which define the value in
cryptoconf.c. Just to be sure, I've also changed cryptoconf.c
to make sure that 3DES can't be used as well.
