Yes, you right, I'm not accused of nothing for now, and the overall
experience at this child protection police station was rather good.
I must say this cops where the most respectfull to me I ever met !

However I might get bad news about this in a few weeks/monthes,
depending of  what the justice wants to do with me. Unauthorised 
cryptographic programs are illegal in france, since the "len" law
adopted two years ago but I believe there is not much precedent
equivalent case so they must be thinking twice before they get me
into trouble.

Thanks for your support !
