Sounds like there a lot of bugs still to be worked out of this system, and given the ingenuity of the blackhatters, I'd bet they'll have already developed practical workarounds by the time this is ready for commercial application.

I'm practically waiting to find out that this can be worked around with the silver foil from a pack of Juicy Fruit.

Ooh! I want one!
