That sounds prudent. 
I included some basic benchmarks and depending on the CPU used I get
some triple digit signatures/verifications per second per core (even on
Sandy Bridge; only low-hanging fruit optimizations used until now).
ed25519 is faster, but I am unsure what your intended performance
profile is.
