That problem went away about 5 years ago.  There are no more separate
domestic and export versions of Netscape or MSIE, for example.  There
appears to be concern about countries which aren't allowed to IMPORT
cryptographic programs.  Of course, those countries also aren't
allowed to import most current web browsers, so downloading from
python.org may be a little problematic for them.
