mcrypt is an encryption library that can be used by PHP/Horde.  After
installing mcrypt on my system last spring, the load average was halved.
Apparently Horde will use mcrypt if it is available but falls back to it's
own (less optimized, I guess) code otherwise.  You definately want to
install mcrypt.
