I actually would like to know if we are testing keyspace front to back
ie, started at 1 and going on and on and on, untill the last key is
tested. Statistically we would probably find the solution quicker if
we'd test the keyspace in a random order.

If the correct key is the 1 before last, chances are much higher we find
it today if using random order then when checking int the correct order.
