Subject: Re: Emit a status line at every cracked password

I like that little patch.  However, usable options flags are getting VERY rare.   We may have to create a flags2 at some time soon, to get more available options.  If we do that, then we have to be very careful about which flags to put into each flag value. We should first start with flags which do not carry any outside impact.

Even for this one, is it possible to use FLAG_NONE, and set an int value in some way?

Options like salts, save_mem, config_cli, nolog, and possibly make_charset are all options which might be good canidates to shove over into a flags2 variable.
