Computers workgroup?

This article appears in the Computers Workgroup. I'd like to argue that it does not belong in the computers workgroup. The only link it has to computers is that it discusses a cryptographic algorithm, and that nowadays, cryptographic algorithms are generally performed by computers. Even the phrase "One could save time by cutting the cipher in half" suggests that it is intended that the cipher be done by hand. Unless anyone objects, I plan to remove this from the Computers Workgroup in a few days. --Nick Johnson 15:18, 18 April 2007 (CDT)
