I have started the work to use the www.netrino.com CRC code. I have 
downloaded the code, extended it with CRC-64-ISO support, optimized it 
and tested it. Next step is to update the rolling-crc function to use 
it. Will probably do that by next weekend. I now finally understand how 
CRC actually works :-)


PS: The www.netrino.com code is based on the CRC papers by Ross N. 
Willams (http://www.ross.net/crc/download/crc_v3.txt)
