Thanks for the pointer, I will take a look on it.

Yes, it was the first think we tried. It's a very fast portable library,
but it's not even near the performance we need.
The new client (due RSN) will come with a new BrydDES core that's 8%
faster on Pentium Pro, and still the same (very good) speed on Pentiums
and 486 cpus.

For other CPUs I've used the SolNET bitslice code, which even if slower
than the DESCHALL clients (26%), is better than nothing...
