What are the right units for that discussion?

I think it has to include cost and time-to-solve.  For compute-intensive 
approaches that parallize, the time part drops out.  There are probably 2 
paths, one using COTS gear and another using ASICs.

Is there something like Moore's Law for breaking crypto?
