Since markov is a jumbo addition, then worrying about john changing versions to 1.7.7 should not impact its direction of development. I see pro's and cons for both methods. I actually think allowing multiple john.conf subsections for different markov setups is a good idea. However, as is, nothing beats simply typing new params on the command line. I think if ALL markov params were command line syntax switches, or all params were in a single john.conf section, then things would be better. As we have it today, we have some params on the command line, and some set globally in john.conf. Thus, as Frank is posting with his query, it is not ideal. Jim.
