There's a best practice left that I haven't marked as 'Met' because I'm not
entirely sure (mostly because my memory is weak on the specifics). So I wanted
to bounce this you you peeps on the list. This the critiera:

Under Security / Good cryptographic practices:

  "The project SHOULD implement perfect forward secrecy for key agreement
protocols so a session key derived from a set of long-term keys cannot be
compromised if one of the long-term keys is compromised in the future"

We can mark this is as a 'Met', can't we?
