I updated the Internet Cryptography pages.  Some new features:

   * new I-Ds (non-expired 00 versions) are listed on a separate page <http://www.mindspring.com/~dmcgrew/ic/new.html 

   * statistics on the number of times each algorithm is referenced <http://www.mindspring.com/~dmcgrew/ic/statistics.html 

That last page can be used to answer the question in the subject  
line.  (Hint: it is not something most of us probably recommend
