I have not been abusive in this thread, but I am getting tired of your
sniping.  I am not a cryptographer, and I do not claim to be.  But I have
had experience of working with secure protocols.  What I was asking was a
basic question that should have been simple to answer.  

If you don't want to discuss this, then fine.  It is your project, not
mine.  You are apparently convinced that it is good enough and anyone who
thinks otherwise has to prove it.  That is a strange way to approach
security - I had always thought that it was the responsibility of the
implementer to document and prove security.

Whatever - it is your problem if it is flawed.  I'm leaving this list.
