[Jan 08 23:17:05 UTC] Automatic processor type detection found
                       a PowerPC 7450 (G4) processor.
[Jan 08 23:17:05 UTC] RC5-72: using core #4 (KKS 2-pipe).
[Jan 08 23:17:25 UTC] RC5-72: Benchmark for core #4 (KKS 2-pipe)
                       0.00:00:16.79 [87,462,090 keys/sec]
8.470u 0.070s 0:19.70 (43.3%) 0+0k->0 0i0o 0f0w 0r0s 0sig 0+0sw

Which means I'd get 201 MKeys if processes weren't sucking up CPU time 
like they tend to.

Of course, I don't use this client normally (I don't even do RC5 
normally).
