I'm having fun with this, so I put some "curve efficiency" data into a


I included Microsoft's latest numbers for the 6 new curves they
recommend [1], as well as what I think is their most efficient curve

If anyone has other interesting data, particularly for competitive
implementations of NIST or safe curves, feel free to send it (e.g.
Kasper's P-224? ARM?)
