Yes, and that's ok, but NEO is just working on it because d.net
rejected (or did not answer or what else...).

And I don't take NEO to serious (who could seriously think about
breaking a 2048bit RSA-key?!?), despite the fact that they do not have
clients for any other operating system than windows.

My last hope for d.net is OGR, because I too think that breaking
RC5-72 is just playing with statistics and does not proove anything...
