I liked your new code.  The encryption/decryption speed on a Pentium Pro
was about 2-3 times faster than the old D3DES.  I was getting around
5 to 7 uS per 100 bytes v.s about 15 uS per 100 bytes.  Unfortunately
the key setup is more expensive, about 200 uS v.s. 80 uS.  For lots of 
short messages which require different keys it is slower than D3DES.  
For long messages or many messages with the same key it is faster.
