That was much easier than I feared. I did have to move the 
john_register_all() call in john.c main() so the formats are loaded when 
calling opt_init(). I hope this won't break anything?

Other than that, it was like hello_world.c and we should have done this 
ages ago!

Currently this code writes to column 79 (80th) at most but we can lower 
this by one in case it cause empty lines on Windows?

No rights reserved, yada yada, enjoy!
