Why these two, but not HMAC-SHA512?  I am just wondering.

In fact, I thought of optionally using the "unique" code in wordlist mode
regardless of where the input comes from.  However, I am concerned that
if changes this invasive are first made in -jumbo, it will deviate from
the main tree's code too far.  Ideally, I should find time and implement
this in the main tree first... but it's not something I'll have time for
any time soon (got other priorities, including for JtR).

Thanks,

Alexander
