This now done & committed, for all such formats. I think it shaved over 2 minutes from office2013 (which was/is worst), yet it's still over 8 minutes :-(

The reason is now purely the self-test scheme: This unreasonable format take 17 seconds per crypt_all() and the current self-test will do a lot of calls for the keys_per_crypt of 16384 that is chosen, testing only one key per call.

The 570 is much faster because each crypt_all() call is only 7 seconds, and the keys_per_crypt is a mere 2048.
