Yes, later. We actually have a rough version committed now. It's Atom's
code used almost as-is, with the output prints replaced with
crk_process_key(). It does not yet support resume, node/fork or
ETA/progress but I will fix this in the nearest couple of days.

Performance is only half as good as I expected from something Atom
wrote. Maybe there's some really low hanging fruit, I haven't got to
that yet. My #1 prio is session save/restore, #2 is node/fork.
