I have contacted him about what name to use for attribution, and have not 
heard back yet.  I used Simon within the data I posted, but we may want to 
make sure that is how he wants it to be.

I saw that, but do not understand why  it can not live past a -restore.  I 
did not figure that information was really needed in a release notice, and 
hopefully that limitation will be able to be corrected.

Yes, mssql05 was you, very recently, and a good addition to crack these in 
the same manner that LM's help crack NTLM's.

I had copied the logic as it existed in loaded (unless I screwed up).  There 
was a format or 2, that I posted comments listing that the original looked 
busted, but I did not know that the 'correct' logic should have been.

I am not overly worried about all minutia being listed.   I am just glad we 
got to the quality we did.

Must have come in with the SSEi code from Simon.  I have extended it some, 
and use the hell out of it.   I do not know how I got along debugging some 
of the nastier parts of problems in formats, prior to these helper functions 
(especially the interleaved MMX formats).

No, I missed these.  There was also the change which you and Alex put 
together recently, but I do not remember just what it was.  I think it had 
to do with some test suite stuff taking a LONG time, in the multi-threaded 
models.  But in looking over a diff file that was over a mb, I did not find 
it :)
