He's Luis from Spain and also Emmanuel Goldstein from 1984 and 2600, much
fun for the security mavens he's supposedly just solocited help from.

Please do a Master's Thesis lot of work for him. As others pointed out,
this material can't be covered in only one semester.
But feel free to help him; I'm sure you can afford the time. Meanwhile,
don't complain that we noticed him for what he is. And don't complain when
he doesn't actually need the Master's Thesis you make for him.
