out of interest, anyone think a distributed project using john would be

Almost probably not. If the key didn't break in the first day or two, you're
probably looking at a Really Long Time. Look how long it takes for something
like distributed.net to do *one* key...
You're much better off trying to attack the key management - can you scavenge
a password off swap pages or a memory image, etc....
