Subject: john for windows

After having a nice patched version 1.7, i'm dreaming of a patch
making john behave like lc5 on windows-hashes:

After cracking a users complete lmhash, invoke another thread or
process and crack the ntlm-hash as well to get the "real"
case-sensitive password, spitting them out or saving them in an easy
to use format like the one used with john -show. Since there aren't
too many possible combinations of the lm-hash, a potential patch won't
need to invoke a complete second jtr-process for cracking the
ntlm-hash, a simple bruteforce-des should do this job fine and won't
slow down the cracking-process substantially.

I'd be pleased to see somebody with a bit of time and c-knowledge
implementing something like this.
