Actually technically they are right.  RC-5 IS a password cracker.  We
are trying to crack the password for a paticular message.  Therefore
the client is changing passwords thousands of times a second.  

It is not trying to crack the system password, but it is cracking a
password.

I can certainly understand a sysadmin feeling uncomfortable with this
sort of thing going on.
