I think we need to acknowledge that by far the most important and
most easily justifiable requirement is the verifiable paper audit.

My concern is that any additional demands (such as opening the
sourcecode) which IMHO is justifiable, but far less justifiable
than the paper trail, may detract from our ability to achieve
the primary goal.
