[RC5] Splitting buff-in.des?

Since I somewhat stupidly downloaded 1000 DES blocks, which would take my
Pentium 40 days or so to check, I'm wondering if it would be possible to 
just "shave off" some blocks from my buff-in.des and give them to some 
other computer to check? Otherwise, with bad luck, the contest might be
delayed if the right block is sitting on my hard disk... Returning the 
unchecked would be OK too, of course.

It seems the file format is rather simple and it seems simple enough to 
cut out the blocks, but I'm not quite sure it would work.
