[RC5] Performance on P-IV

Speaking of StrongARM, why isn't there a client to work on PPC? Whilst my
Aero 1550 sits in its cradle, it could be doing its part!

and just to add my £0.02 (soon to be €0.02 who knows?)
calling a cpu sucky just because it under-achieves your expectations in the
RC5-64 project is hardly any evidence of a sucky cpu,
a StrongARM wouldn't measure up to many of the other cpu's that the RC5
project is running (PPC the favourite!) still doesn't make
the StrongARM a lousy CPU, every CPU has it's own niche, there's no point
in making all cpu's strong in numbercrunching as some
users actually have other needs....

It's time to smell some of the good old coffee, a high keyrate isn't == a
good cpu...
