FATCA means that no "U.S. person" can have any access to the bank
account; we are well and painfully aware of that, and it's not a
problem. Only three of us fall in that category anyway; OpenSSL is not a
U.S. centric organization. Our U.S. connections are only due to the
circumstantial fact that the OpenSSL team member (me) who initially set
up our banking arrangements happened to be American.
