How long would it take for Deep Gene by IBM to do the whole RC5/64 key
space? From what I know it will have one million processors. 

Is this the kind of computer that terriosts will need to crack
encrycption in a reasoble amount of time? If so then the secrets being
protected must be really important to be worth 100 million $ to build
the computer in the first place.
