Good stuff. Final figures for boost (Rockyou list, standard rules) on my 
laptop are +62% for LM/nsk3 and +37% for NT. Without rules, it's +25% 
and +18%.

I agree. Otherwise we may need to create a cluster patch including 
0001-0026 (and pkzip). Speaking of pkzip, we should probably sort the 
x64 issues before next Jumbo. I'm posting 0027 now, after that I have 
nothing pending.
