Thanks. To the extent that the new SP will be accepted by deployers[1]
that would make at least some of our lifes quite a bit easier.
(Others will likely report the sharing the supported crypto algorithms
as a security "vulnerability". ;))

[1] Which is of course impossible to predict. Maybe the continued
pressure to Containerize All The Things will make a Java-based shibd
less of an issue, with deployers "just" loading an image with that
part of the SP and a matching JVM. It would of course help if
Java-shibd then sufficiently scaled to connect via TCP sockets,
possibly protected with [m]TLS?
