[RC5] Found the key? Immediate flush!

I understand the clients are designed to act as if nothing special has
happened if they happen to stumble across the right key.  That's fine.  But
consider this:  that client may be online-always, and yet may have 8 hour's
worth of output buffers to fill before automatically flushing.  8 hours
could make the difference between winning $10,000 and $5,000, or between
$5,000 and $0.

If the client is online-always, doesn't it make sense for it to immediately
notify d.net?  Silently, of course...
