This might be a typical use case for you, but some people are running
scripts that generate lots of keys. There may be a good argument that
if you're doing that kind of thing, a tiny MIPS router isn't the right
hardware for your use case. But, before going down that route, I'd
still be interested in knowing if it _actually_ makes any difference
at all. Maybe it's negligible, for example.
