That script does not work well. For example, it considers this a
password from

"characters__17:mscash (user name required for salt in john's format):"

where the actual password is just "characters__17".

I think this is better for most files:
grep -v '^#!comment:' $1 | cut -d: -f5 | perl -ne 'use bytes; chomp;
print length, "\n"' | sort -n | uniq -c | sort -nk2

I think I'll update the script and add a sum column too.
