That bug in the bleeding branch is fixed now (it did not affect
Jumbo-6). The memory footprint remains at 674 MB but the speed was even
better, 15 seconds. So from these tests I suppose what we should really
do is write a get_source() for your format in the bleeding branch,
instead of reducing binary size. They are obviously mutually exclusive -
you can't reconstruct the ciphertext source from a reduced binary.
