I wonder about this. The author of the ASIO is Christopher M. Kohlhoff
who is Australian. I presume it was written there. So shipping ASIO would
"exporting" it and thus not subject to such laws. Am I missing something
It gets even more interesting. ASIO has been proposed as an edition to
the standard library. Would conforming C++ implementation then require
an export license. Or what.
