Rémi Guyomarch <rguyom at mail.dotcom.fr>
rc5-56-client (rg) : Testing crypt routines
rc5-56-client (rg) : Performance testing with 1000000 crypts
rc5-56-client (rg) : Complete in 5.213 seconds. (191823.71 keys/sec)

	The official RC5 client performs as follows:

The Bovine Custom GNU rc5 client

rc5-56-client: Performance testing with 1000000 crypts
rc5-56-client: Complete in 6.063 seconds. (164947.94 keys/sec)
