Reality reminder: At the current rate, it will take 63.6 years to
search the 64bit keyspace. I expect more machines to join the effort,
and there's no telling how much of the space we'll need to search, but
even with ten times the processing power, we probably wouldn't find
the key in this century.

We'll certainly illustrate RSA's point about key sizes though.
