This is a complete and utter mischaracterization of my replies. I have
replied directly to your issues. Made suggestions for ways to resolve
them. Explaned how I think you're trying to solve an entirely different
problem than I am. Yet somehow you feel like a broken record. Well
Justin, if you feel like a broken record it's because you're not
replying to my replies. You're choosing to repeat yourself.

You seem to be of the belief that it is some universal truth that shared
keys are bad. So I really don't see the point in discussing this
further... If we can't come to a consesus then let's just vote on it
and get it over with. I suppose I'll probably even lose because people
simply aren't interested in spending the time thinking about this stuff.
