I've had a bit of think about it, and AFAICS there is no way of ensuring a
reported result is accurate, without totally rechecking the result, that is
practical. I'll have another look through this RC5 paper, but I can't think
of a good way of doing it. The only plausible method is to issue each keyspace
TWICE, and compare the results. And I think that would upset a lot of people!
