Well he REALLY doesn't have any science behind it. He REALLY couldn't
justify the design. He REALLY didn't have a clear motivation for it,

Keep in mind Zoltak was the "3 cycle patent guy" from a few years ago.
Then he plagued the group with his design. He then proceeds to make a
file encryption tool around it, etc...
Like the average troll.

You keep saying that but I don't think you know what that means.

Yeah, because their design strategy IS crap. Why did they not just
link against a crypto library?
Brians comments on that are also retarded. A good cross-platform
crypto library REDUCES the chances of bugs and allows parallel
development from more than one team.
E.g. they can feed off each other. Keep in mind Brian has a motivation
to encourage "pick and choose" development models. He gets his name
all over the source for it.
Now I'm not saying Brian hasn't contributed to the field. He's
certainly a good implementor of crypto algorithms and he knows his
stuff. Just his software development [development != coding] decisions

First I've read of it. Are you sure you're not misrembering it?
