I have no idea about the present code, but the general idea is excellent.

Fwiw I think I saw a misformatteded NT-format (using $NT$) hash file 
result in segfault because there was : in user names (all of them, so in 
practice there was a field between user and hash throughout the whole 
file, and it was not an LM hash). Just a heads up, I haven't had time to 
confirm or reproduce it.

I haven't seen any major problems merging my projects against this, I'm 
all for it.
