[RC5] DES II-3 Work to Completion?

Just because we haven't solved an entire keyspace doesn't mean that
keyspace/block recycling hasn't been tested.  There are beta testers and
beta-testing sessions.  It has ALREADY reacted for real in beta-testing.
Besides, there are better and faster ways to check this out without having
to drill through an entire 2^56 keyspace.

I understand your need to know that the system is as robust as d.net  is
boasting ( :-) ).  However, if anything, the whole network of proxy/master
servers has been tested upside down and inside out.  I think that there will
need to be some alterations to this as V3 debuts and multiple projects get
worked on simultaneously(I can't remember if any admins discussed this or
not).  But, the core logic is definitely capable and stable.

		Well, putting load on your machine, isn't that what all
people
		are doing for the project ?

		It would be very intresting to see how it will react for
real...
