Perhaps it's no walk in the park even for > you :-) Actually, I am tempted to do it for the slower code currently in the main tree, but then I am worried that it'd make integration of faster SIMD-enabled code trickier. Yet I might do it. It'd be very nice to say that a certain JtR release supports parallelization of _all_ crypt(3) hashes that it supports at all, as well as of those that it only supports through c3_fmt.c (so it will be all in that sense, in fact). That would be good for marketing, even if -jumbo's intrinsics code performs better. ;-) If I do it, can I count on you for rebasing -jumbo on that updated main tree (not necessarily introducing similar parallelization for its code, but merely making it work like it does now)? Thanks, Alexander
