     Th ratio of the o() (not O()) leading coefficient for the RC5-56 
     client to the RC5-64 client.  I.e.  the work to do an old 56-bit key 
     is about 7/8 the work to do a new key, so 7/8 of the old utility 
     transforms to new utility when the units are held fixed at keys per 
     second.

"The 7/8 utility multiplier" <- what exactly is that?
