Subject: Sorted format list

The format list has grown big in Jumbo. This is a good thing of course,
but it's becoming hard to digest. I have a trivial patch that sorts the
generated list before outputting, like this:

--format=NAME     force hash type NAME: afs/bf/bfegg/bsdi/crc32/crypt/
                  cryptmd5-opencl/cuda-cryptmd5/cuda-cryptsha256/
                  cuda-cryptsha512/cuda-mscash/cuda-mscash2/cuda-phpass/
                  cuda-rawsha224/cuda-rawsha256/des/dmd5/dominosec/
                  dragonfly3-32/dragonfly3-64/dragonfly4-32/
                  dragonfly4-64/drupal7/dummy/dynamic_n/epi/hdaa/
                  hmac-md5/hmac-sha1/hmac-sha224/hmac-sha256/
                  hmac-sha384/hmac-sha512/hmailserver/ipb2/krb4/krb5/lm/
                  lotus5/md4-gen/md5/md5ns/mediawiki/mscash/mscash2/
                  mschapv2/mskrb5/mssql/mssql05/mysql/mysql-fast/
                  mysql-sha1/mysql-sha1-opencl/nethalflm/netlm/netlmv2/
                  netntlm/netntlmv2/nsldap/nt/nt-opencl/nt2/oracle/
                  oracle11/pdf/phpass-md5/phpass-opencl/phps/pix-md5/
                  pkzip/po/rar/raw-md4/raw-md5/raw-md5-opencl/raw-md5u/
                  raw-sha/raw-sha1/raw-sha1-opencl/raw-sha224/
                  raw-sha256/raw-sha384/raw-sha512/salted-sha1/sapb/
                  sapg/sha-crypt-256/sha-crypt-512/sha1-gen/ssh/
                  ssha-opencl/sybasease/trip/xsha/xsha512/zip

Is this OK? Actually, I'd also like to replace '/' with space, because
IMO it gets much easier to read. It would look like this:

--format=NAME     force hash type NAME: afs bf bfegg bsdi crc32 crypt
                  cryptmd5-opencl cuda-cryptmd5 cuda-cryptsha256
                  cuda-cryptsha512 cuda-mscash cuda-mscash2 cuda-phpass
                  cuda-rawsha224 cuda-rawsha256 des dmd5 dominosec
                  dragonfly3-32 dragonfly3-64 dragonfly4-32
                  dragonfly4-64 drupal7 dummy dynamic_n epi hdaa
                  hmac-md5 hmac-sha1 hmac-sha224 hmac-sha256
                  hmac-sha384 hmac-sha512 hmailserver ipb2 krb4 krb5 lm
                  lotus5 md4-gen md5 md5ns mediawiki mscash mscash2
                  mschapv2 mskrb5 mssql mssql05 mysql mysql-fast
                  mysql-sha1 mysql-sha1-opencl nethalflm netlm netlmv2
                  netntlm netntlmv2 nsldap nt nt-opencl nt2 oracle
                  oracle11 pdf phpass-md5 phpass-opencl phps pix-md5
                  pkzip po rar raw-md4 raw-md5 raw-md5-opencl raw-md5u
                  raw-sha raw-sha1 raw-sha1-opencl raw-sha224
                  raw-sha256 raw-sha384 raw-sha512 salted-sha1 sapb
                  sapg sha-crypt-256 sha-crypt-512 sha1-gen ssh
                  ssha-opencl sybasease trip xsha xsha512 zip

Also, I'd really like the CUDA formats renamed to eg. cryptmd5-cuda so
they end up in the "right" place in this list. This would make it easier
to notice that a certain format has alternatives.

Even after that, we have inconsistencies like sha-crypt-256 vs.
cryptsha256-cuda. I'm willing to rename sha-crypt-256 to just
cryptsha256 (it's shorter!). There are other cases, like salted-sha1 vs.
ssha-opencl. Perhaps salted-sha1 should be renamed to ssha. BTW I think
I should rename raw-sha to raw-sha0 to avoid confusion.

Another thing we might consider is to drop some of the indentation in
this list to get fewer lines, but that's a matter of taste... it will
become unaligned with the rest of the usage blob.

What do you guys think?
