I admit I haven't looked at the code, but what I took from their web site
does not imply that you need to send/share your private key, or that the
encryption algorithm used is "theirs".  Assuming there's nothing hidden in
their code, I'm not sure what the objection is.  But I do enjoy a good
polemic, so...care to share a link to yours?
