comment How to introduce a computer illiterate 50-year old to programming
Hrm, I broke down the skills into different categories to make the point that getting bogged down on syntax and semantics can cloud the development of the other skills -- a language with fewer arcane-feeling rules will let the abstraction flow easier -- but I appear to have not stated that point well.

comment Programmers' concerns about export restrictions from the United States
I can't speak to why the Java keysizes are limited -- I do know that before the US regulations were relaxed, Cryptography in Java was extremely awkward, requiring a specific download from Sun to provide the algorithms. Of course, others filled the void, which just complicate matters further. Perhaps Sun / Oracle have an understanding with the US Govt to not make high-powered cryptography "too easy", perhaps they just haven't seen a need to extend the cryptography in Java since Bouncy Castle seems to be preferred anyway.

If you're relying 100% on the host OS to provide the cryptography primitives, you don't have to do anything. :)

comment Programmers' concerns about export restrictions from the United States
It is my recollection that hashed passwords aren't one of the things they're interested in -- so if that's all your application does, you're almost certainly fine. I can't speak for what any other application authors do...
