About page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JH_(hash_function) reference to 'bit slicing'

There is a confusion between bit slicing as a now obsolete method of assembling CPUs from bit-slice components such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Am2900 4-bit slices, and bit-slicing as an algorithm implementation technique where computations are expressed on boolean variables, so it is possible to run as many instances of the algorithm in parallel as the number of bits in a machine word.
