I would hope that anyone clever enough to implement some very tricky crypto 
algorithms would also be clever enough to backdoor them in a way that could 
never be discovered.  Or to turn that around, if you weren't clever enough to 
undetectably backdoor it then I'd be a bit concerned about your crypto 
implementation.
