Anyone interested in the feasibility of how easy it is to crack a 56 bit
algorithm check out:

http://www.bsa.org/policy/encryption/cryptographers.html

where you'll find that a dedicated *government* sponsored effort can take
as short as 12 seconds. A description of what it would take to do that,
and how, can be found there written by some very knowledgeable
cryptographers and mathematicians.
