I guess what I'm wondering is whether Adobe is using the FBI as its
street protestors.  Now that it's got the suit underway to its liking,
it can piously proclaim that it would rather the FBI drop its suit,
but "Hey, it's out of our hands, we can't control what those guys
decide to do."

I hope not, but it would be an interesting bit of irony.

Anyway, kudos to the EFF for getting this far with executive piglets
at Adobe.
