Red Pike cipher

The interest isn't in any comparison with AES, it's that Red Pike is a 
classified GCHQ-designed cipher from the crypto wars. The code matches the 
description by Ross Anderson and Markus Kuhn, but if it's non-genuine then it 
could just have been implemented to make sure that it matches the description.  
It looks like a tweaked TEA-like cipher.  If it is genuine and it's from GCHQ, 
maybe it's EnglishBreakfastTEA.
