How optimised are the RC5 clients? By my estimates, about a thousand
cycles are used per key (I use a Pentium) - surely a few cycles can be
knocked off that? (what are the chances that a thousand-cycle process is
perfectly optimised?) Also, is the search used totally blind but 
exhaustive rather than quickly culling keys which are obviously incorrect?
