Are there differences in the API between the two efforts?  When do you think
you will have an API available for comment?  I saw the intel API on the
blueprint specification, but I am not sure if that is going to change or not.

The volume encryption team is obviously very interested in the key manager.
Please keep us informed of the effort. We would like to know the APIs as soon 
as possible, so we can begin coding to an interface. That will make it easy for
us to transition to a real key manager in future.

Any timeline on when this would happen?
