The whole point of using an ephemeral key is to make the contents of the
swap useless after the system has terminated. For forensic, but of
course also for resume. If something was designed do be impossible and
people find a "challenge" or an "opportunity" to try to do anyway, thus
weakening or voiding its benefits, they are just idiots.

I can make that judgement, because I understand what I am talking about.

What can I say? If a good solution exists and people insist on using a
bad one, I can only watch and smile.

I do not pretend that the solution is the only one, it is not. But I can
make the difference between a good solution and a bad one.

Please forgive me, but I do not like to argue further with you on this.
