Subject: NIST SHA-3  finalists - any thoughts on JtR support?

Please see:

I've talked to Joan Daemen (AES), his team has the Keccak hash function
as one of the 5 finalists in the NIST competition for SHA-3. I'm hoping
to have him at Passwords^12 in December, independent of who wins the

NIST will announce a winner sometime this year, and it might happen
during summer. 

So for the obvious question; any thoughts on implementing support for
all finalists, eventually prepare for implementing support for the
winner? After all we can expect a pretty wide deployment of it during
the next couple of years. :-)

Best regards,
Per Thorsheim
