Why should anyone give up a good security margin for an algorithm which
is already very fast. If there is a real world application for such a
reduced version of Salsa20 it makes sense to have it. But until then, I
doubt that it makes any sense.
Simon: Why are you proposing that?

All uppercase please.

A slash in the name is not a good idea (think file name). Lower or
uppercase 'r' would be better.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
