Thanks, Niklas.  I also hope that our efforts can merge with truecrypt.ch.
Just let me know if you would prefer for the truecrypt.ch guys to have the
CipherShed name, and I'll assign it to them.

For now, let's use the FalseCrypt name, but before we release the first
version of our forked TrueCrypt, let's settle on the final name, which I
hope will be CipherShed.

From your email, I would guess you are also a programmer.  Otherwise, why
would you care about the KISS rule?  Are you interested in joining the
development effort?
