That's curious.  Even more interesting would be speed numbers with the
overhead mostly excluded - that is, use this test vector:

	{"..X8NBuQ4l6uQ", ""},

set the iteration count e.g. to 2501 (any odd value should do), and
multiply the reported c/s rate by 100 (if you picked 2501) to get the
descrypt equivalent cracking speed.

As to the overhead, we'll need to deal with it by other means later.

I just did some math, and I think that your 24M with overhead may
correspond to around 65M in the without-overhead test.  Please confirm
or disprove. ;-)

1/(1/39+1/41) = 19.99

1/(1/39+1/60) = 23.64
1/(1/39+1/65) = 24.38

39M is my guess as to the "overhead speed" alone (without crypto), based
on the 19.9M "with overhead" speed you reported and my 41M
without-overhead test.  Assuming that this "with overhead" speed
remained the same, it'd take around 65M without-overhead speed to
reach/exceed 24M reported for overhead+crypto.
