This looks pretty good to me, but the list of "Fingerprint Types"
doesn't mention unicorns, while the "computationally-chosen flaw" bit
does mention unicorns.  And they only show up there, actually -- that's
probably going to be a head-scratcher for some poor usability researcher :)

I'd be happy to see this kind of work happen.  it's a small piece of the
overall crypto usability puzzle, but i think it would provide useful data.
