OK, there's an exception under fair use from 1201(a) for
decrypt*ing* lists of blocked sites, but none from 1201(b) for
the means to do so.

Is this more, or less, the "smoking gun" case we've been looking
for to challenge 1201(b)'s making it illegal to have the only
available means to do things that, if they were illegal under
1201(a), would be unConstitutional?
