For a v.4 64 bit keyid collision the most naiive attack will need
about 2^64 calls to SHA1.
Currently a GPU costing about $500 will break it in about 220 years.
So 220 GPUs will break it in a about year.
Total budget (electricity, etc) might be in the range of $200K - $300K -
someone familiar with hash cracking told me so.
Might be wrong though.
