I'm not going to talk about this for three reasons.
1. I've never used Diceware, so I can't talk intelligently
2. The answer will depend a lot on implementation details.
What s2k algorithm is being used? What algorithm is
used to encrypt the secret key? What... etc., etc.
3. I've already explained why quantum computing is not
something we need to worry about. Be far, _far_ more
concerned with the physical security of your machine
more than any hypothetical developments in quantum
We tend to obsess over quantum computing. We shouldn't. At this
point in time it's science fiction.
