You need to establish a clear and valuable use-case first. I still

Well, maybe you have noticed that FOSS projects tend to 
be not very friendly to closed hardware and even less so to
secret hardware. I guess you have to fight through this on

said hardware, you may tell them that by having long key
change times, they messed up.

are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled
with doubt and indecision. -- Bertrand Russell
