Cool. I already created an issue for it in

I saw a couple of bugfixes a day so far, so it's not completely stable.
We should try to keep it "mergable" in one way or the other. At least
refrain from large rewrites unless necessary. For example, we should
#ifdef out unneeded code blocks instead of dropping them.

Unless someone else (read Jim :) beats me to it, I will.

On a side note I haven't looked at the code at all yet but I'm curious
about this mode vs. GPU generation. Perhaps the hotter parts can reside
on GPU? That would be awsome. If it's worthwhile at all I'm sure Atom
will implement it soon.

Yes, we'll have autoconf take care of that. The SRP formats can
optionally do without GMP with some speed penalty, perhaps we can
implement that later.
