Folks:

Vijay: clever idea.

To Ryan's hypothetical example of using ECB mode to compute a
non-standard CTR mode efficiently, I'd like to add Vijay's
hypothetical example of using ECB mode to compute a number of separate
things (generating IVs, in the example) efficiently. I'm still not
aware of any actual use of ECB mode in practice which isn't fatally
flawed, however!

Regards,

Zooko
