Subject: gecos vs prepare()

I have noticed some formats will use hash data as candidates in single 
mode. I suppose this has always been the case but I only noticed it 
after Jumbo-5 and prepare().

For example, NETNTLMv2 will use the server challenge hash as if it was 
GECOS data.

How can we improve this? Could we have prepare() do something to either 
just "mute" this from being used, or better yet, have it "point out" 
what fields may include good data for single mode?
