I like the idea -- essentially the multi-GB data act as a large
site-wide salt that is derived from a smaller parameter set.  My
perception of scrypt is that it is well suitable for offline situations
where you typically have GB's of memory available (e.g., disk encryption
at boot) but not well optimized for online user authentication.
