[RC5] Where do the packets disappear!??

Much worse is going to be the odd numbered subspaces if we keep
skipping them. Then *all* random blocks will be in the completed
even numbered subspaces.

ISTM that such a strategy would also be appropriate for randomly allocated
Before the keyservers changed from dealing out 0x71 blocks to dealing
out 0x72 blocks, any machines which needed to generate random blocks
were being directed to the 0x72 subspace.
As the 0x72 keyspace was handed out immediately afterwards, there would
almost certainly be duplication between random and allocated blocks.
Surely it would not be too difficult to ensure that there is a suitable
delay between clients being directed towards a subspace for generating
random blocks and the subspace being used for allocated blocks?
