Not currently but they could be with a bit of tidying up, which is why I'm
asking.  Most of the things that make it practical rather than a pain in
the neck to manage have been added to ssh-keygen (eg -j/-J to start at a
specified line and process a specified number of lines, checkpoints, and
where possible completion time estimates).  The rest is just some Makefile
and a wrapper script.

Anyway, it sounds like there is at least some interest so I'll round it up.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
