Most people would like me and you not to post patches that break things, 
and this way, they would not have to test things that much. If I ALWAYS 
run tstall for ALL builds I can produce before posting a patch, then 
there is good chance a simple john --test is enough for the end user.

If it wasn't 2MB compressed (twice as big as john+jumbo itself) I would 
say go. But it's big, and it needs to be big. OTOH the flash ads I get 
when just loading my normal news start-page is probably twice that size, 
so what the heck, it's 2011. It wont hurt me, I need it anyway.
