[RC5] new feature?

Since others are batting about new features they'd like to see, I have 
one that I could really use.

I'd like to be able to take two buff-in.[des|rc5] files and make one big 

I have a few P2s that are chomping DES keys at a combined rate of over 
12 Mkeys/s.  Since http proxying no longer works here, I have to 
manually update the buff-in files myself with files brought from home. 
(BTW, the fetch at distributed.net doesn't work, either.)

The problem is that I'm about to leave for the weekend, and there are 30 
blocks (about 90 minutes' worth) left in the buffer.

Today, I'll just let them run out, since the clients will simply switch 
over to the RC5 buffer.  However, when there is no DES contest, the 
choice would be to let the machines chew on random blocks, or throw away 
the remaining blocks and load in the new buffer.
