Subject: [GSoc] JtR GUI

Hi Alexander,
according to your e-mail, we continue our discussion about JtR GUI and 
GSoC 2012 in the mailing list now.

It seems like several incomplete approaches for a GUI are existing, for 
example Aleksey's or Shinnok's, and I'm a little bit confused which of 
them is the one we want to continue working on. I took a look at 
Shinnoks GUI called 'johnny' and found it quite promising (and I 
referred to it in my last mail, sorry if you were talking about 
something different), although it is somehow 'too much'.

However, I now understand the performance issue, and it is also an issue 
of clearness: in my opinion, when the user loads one million hashes or 
even more, it doesn't make very much sense to show them all in a single 
table. Maybe we can use some kind of sorting or a hierachical tree view 
(as shown here: 
http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/images/windowsxp-treeview.png) that 
allows the user to expand and collapse certain rows. Don't know if Qt 
supports this and if its easy to implement ...

Regards,
Dominique
