As far as the algorithm is supported (e.g. MD5) you could easily create
"pseudo"-shadow-files.

Just create a pseudo-user with a pseudo-shell so that it matchs the
normal passwd/shadow Input.
So it's just a copy/paste of the password-string.

And if you're a company you may wanna donate code (Plugins with the
"correct" license) or support the project with some money?

The project (john) is not related to me but a company has always more
power to support such projects then an individual.


Kind regards,
Rembrandt
