Agreed. My socket suite *has* to support 0.9.8, due to one of my larger
customers who cannot upgrade their system (would take them down for weeks).
The programs are air-gapped, so they do not worry about outside hackers.
But for security reasons - they must move date from machine to machine
encrypted - xor would be fine in their requirements.
