Is there any reason to continue? What very little reason there still 
was is now gone. There are no further points to be made with regards 
to RC5. There is no prize to be won.

>The RC5-72 projekt must go on. I will crunch until the last day. ;-)

If it pleases you to do so, then by all means, continue. That's the 
best reason for doing anything. But there are far more useful things 
which your computer could be crunching. Why throw all of those 
perfectly good processor cycles down into a black hole of 
meaninglessness? Pure stubbornness?
