Can you give any examples?

When you say "computationally infeasible", do you really mean
infeasible in the sense that it would take, say, 2^80 cycles to
do the verification? Or do you just mean that the cost (in dollars,
or in person-hours) would be prohibitive in practice (i.e., so large
that it isn't economical)?
