Let's see, my single 180MHz R5000 chip is pumping out oh about 870k k/s
according to the IRIX SGI client. 8-) That's more keys/megahertz than the
first guy's machine. (The client also runs up to about 2604 seconds for
a 2^30 keyblock, or 5209 seconds for a 3^31 block.)

And of course, if we had an engineer at SGI do a touch of assembly code,
this could probably still be about 30% faster for the MIPS/IRIX platform.
