Awesome, good work. I've committed it. By the way, Toni, the style of
this script is looking really good.

You might be able to replace the ip6tobin function with the standard
function ipOps.ip_to_bin.

I don't understand why switching to the brute library doesn't speed it
up. Using multiple threads should allow costly operations like network
roundtrips to happen in parallel. At first I thought it might be the key
derivation function, involving 1,000 rounds of SHA-256, but it hardly
affects the CPU in my quick test.
take close to a second.
