James, you must have mistyped the above, or your logic
is quite flawed.

I have written dozens of programs which store data, and
only a couple have had any crypto needs.  This alone
invalidates your statement as it stands.

What did you really mean to say?  Maybe "could" instead
of "would"?  That would make the statement true, yet
somewhat pointless, and it doesn't contradict what
Martin wrote in either case.
