Thank you for your work on this!

Why do you call these LM?  cp866 was the most popular Cyrillic encoding
under MS-DOS, but I doubt that Windows uses it for LM hashes, or does it?
I'd expect Cyrillic versions of Windows to use cp1251 there, like they
do in other places except when running DOS programs.

I'm sorry for not setting up a git repo yet.  I always have higher
priority tasks to work on - e.g., merging the already submitted patches
felt like higher priority, to unblock further work and to have these
tested before the KoreLogic contest.

In fact, at this time I feel that we need to focus on changes likely
relevant to the contest only.  (The encodings might be relevant.  The
plugins stuff was not, so I would have postponed it.)

Is the primary reason for your patch file naming change that there were
too many files in the john directory?

Thanks again,
