Kite should die.

Kite was an attempt to do Symmetric key exchange for Message HMAC.

Symmetric does not work for Pub sub.

Symmetric implies a separate key pair for each point-to-point message 
sender and receiver.

We should not be doing our own crypo/security mechanism anyway.

Jamie Lennox, formerly of Red Hat and now at IBM was the maintainer, and 
I fully expect him to say he has no interest in it.

I am at Red Hat, and I have no interest in it.

We handed it off to Barbican, and they have no interest in it.

The Kite eating tree has spoken, Charlie Brown.
