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.
