I'm afraid that there's nothing exciting to expect in the _near_ future.

I do have an experimental tree, though, where stuff has been moved under

Further changes in that tree should make it more extensible.

This does not need any further thought.  I simply need to find/allocate
the time to implement parallel processing support in JtR - and do it.
