Crimson offers a superset of the cryptographic features available in the .NET
framework. For various reasons Crimson isn't distributed within Mono. The main
reasons being:
* Target audience
As a superset to both .NET and Mono cryptographic features, Crimson
is useful to everyone, not just Mono users.
* Support
Crimson is not required inside Mono to reach feature parity with MS
implementation of the .NET framework and it's related tools. As such
supporting Crimson is not the goal of the Mono project.
* Export restriction on cryptographic software
Laws regarding export and, sometimes import, of cryptography are
diverse and complex. It is difficult to add/remove algorithms and
keep all the required paperwork in sync. Distribution as source-only
makes this a lot easier.
