SHA-3 ad hoc compiler: Reloaded

count_the_monkeysIt occurred to me that SHA-3 being a cryptographic hash, it is one of those peculiar bits of code that are fully self-testing. Any bug in a cryptographic hash will quickly cascade to a different result, no matter the bug or the input.

This means the ad-hoc-compiler-monkey can be unleashed “safely”, and can be allowed to try “improper changes.”
