Vanity generator for public key hashes?

From @mateon1 on Thu Aug 11 2016 23:47:14 GMT+0000 (UTC)

I’m interested whether there exists a vanity hash generator for IPFS public/private keypairs, similar to Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.
An example: findvanity QmIPFS -> QmIPFSistvz5r37jedMyXsTZ7i8AtrcpZJavoU8Jn7Ysju; keypair: [public key and private key]

Hm, in that case, how were QmSoL nodes created? Are they running a modified version of IPFS where the peer ID doesn’t represent the pubkey?

No, it was just slow.

Something like that wouldn’t be possible as your node would refuse to connect to them.
