Looking at the code, sure, but running the code on lots of examples in a
debugger should shed some light for someone with experience of cracking and
bayes/AIT. Several people can do this simultaneously, of course, and AGI is
easier to explain when working within a team where members are not stripping
details to avoid giving too much away.

I suspect any deliberate attempts at code obfuscation, if they are to be
more than a nuisance to an experienced cracker would have a performance
