Hmm, I expect those requests to come with a clause "you will keep quiet
about this or we send you straight to jail". How do you plan to address

Not keeping log files was permitted in the EU until relatively recently,
even required to a large extent, until they got persuaded otherwise and
made log keeping legally compulsory for 3-12 months (I think). If NZ
doesn't have rules about it (yet?) it would be a bonus for staying

In principle I am interested in such a service, and would support
establishing the feasibility of it.
