This script will run forever, producing output and dumping a key when 3 or more "signal words" are found in the noise.
Seeing upwards of 3 would yeild a key that would be close enough to a solution that the remainder could be deciphered by human eyes.
It's a comprimise between the need for building a very fast engine, and the need to have a strict dictionary check of every possible word.
Given the enormous keyspace we're dealing with, it's mathematically unlikely to yeild a full solution in our lifetime. This tool attempts to render partial solutions which warrant human appraisal.
