it's seventeen times as fast, as per the table in that link.

Is that correct? According to that, this AES Cipher class (as utilized in phpclasses2.phps) is the SLOWEST AES implementation available. Is that correct? I find that very hard to believe given that people are still, even after this revelation, singing AES Cipher's praises and still trying to use it.

If that chart is correct, then why, even after Queen Zeal's post, are people still using AES Cipher? If I fork AES Cipher and add a pointless sleep(10) to it to make it take even longer will my fork, all of a sudden, become the most popular PHP implementation of AES ever?
