That's what I deduced as well. I have far too much time to explain
statistics, coding theory and compression algorithms to random people on
the Internet. Code talks. I'm almost done implementing SHA-512/256 and
Edon-R-512/256. I've spent most of the time learning how the ZFS code is
structured and I now have most of the pieces in place, so expect the
completed code drop with (SHA-512, Edon-R and Skein) by this weekend.
