	You're right about the speed-ups.  I rewrote the genx client
for the ultra (I have not done any assembly tweaking yet), and I am 
getting a 58% speed up over the rc5v2b2 client.  The code I wrote
also runs 10% faster on other sparc architectures.

	I tried contacting the bovine administrators about connecting
my encryption core to the rc5v2 networking code, but I have not heard
anything as of yet....
