Hi Robert,

It's not the *original* key apparently, but the new one for the
current release.  Current rumors are that they're committing suicide
for the same reasons as Lavabit - which would explain why they're
pushing people over to products with NSA key escrow built in.

Kind Regards,
Chris Drake
