Sorry -- I meant to define that.  A ‘computable’ function can be
computed in a reasonable amount of time (e.g. faster than a discrete
logarithm on Curve25519, not the real computation-theory definition);
a ‘securely computable’ function can be computed efficiently in
software without leaking any information about its input or output to
a side-channel attacker.
