      I have not been following this in detail, but I gained the impression
      that Warren's original advert was far too optimistic and that now
      his heuristic for oracular factorization has escalated from
      exp(log(N)^(1/3+o(1))) to the far less encouraging
      exp(log(N)^(2/3+o(1))) as the time to construct a database.

      Is this a fair summary of the setback?
