The Magic Lantern thing is most likely A Red Herring thing. Most reports
say that the FBI "is developing" blah blah blah. This 'could' be done for the
Windoz machines, but it's more effective to let the newsies have it and see
who is changing encryption techniques. So far the result is a modest
increase in the number of folk encrypting a picture of "Fluffy" the cat and
sending that to themselves through the remailers (mixmaster). This really
pisses the Echelon crew.
