Shrug. He doesn't explain what 'broken' means to him or under what  
threat model, and dammit, security without a threat model is like  
motherhood without apple pie. I can "easily break" a bank vault by  
putting an MP5 to the head of the guy with the key, but that's hardly  
the vault's fault, now is it?
