Here's a diff with just that (to be applied to my utf-8 experiment, 
nothing else). I'm pleased with the functonality, for example the "john 
-test -utf8" after tweaking unicode stuff.

Note that SAPg has FMT_UTF8 but not FMT_UNICODE.

I still can't crack repeated Euro signs (but everything else I tried, 
very weird) in NT or raw-md5 but it works fine in mscash so the 
utf8tocws() is not the culprit. When that is nailed I'll post a new 
complete (still experimental) patch against Jumbo-12.
