[Ach] reviewers

One of the people I asked for a review was a bit worried that he
couldn't stand with his name for the sections of the document he
didn't review; he asked to have the reviewed sections listed with the
reviewers, which I thought to be waaaaay to complicated, so I proposed
to put some note in the reviewers section mentioning that they didn't
review everything...

Please check and revert if you don't like it.

>From the reviewers I contacted, the following issues are up for

* we need a more prominent note that the reader should make sure he's got a
  current copy of our document, because "secure" settings may change
  any day when a new attack is discovered!

* PKI section; I've rewritten it to include the CA and the Web of
  Trust system to be more generic.

* admins might be interested in performance estimates (i.e. "if I turn
  on PFS, what is the slowdown?")

* the "MAC" column in the cipher suite tables (3.2.3) and in other
  places does actually not contain a MAC, but a hash or a block cipher
  mode... this may be nitpicking, but so will be our readers.

* "factoring large primes" (ECC section, f'rex) is wrong, it's about
  prime-factoring large numbers, isn't it?

more later,
