What is the difference between the DESPlugin and the pure smalltalk DES code 
that was provided.

Also it would be interesting to hear Bryce's input on this.  Speeding up now 
is good, but if the JIT turns out fast (as it sounds like it will) then we 
would want as much as possible to be pure smalltalk, no?
