I used john | perl -nle '$f = 0 if /^--/; $f = 1 if /^--format/; print $1 while m!([-\w\(\)]+)(/|$)!g && $f' to get list from John's output for Johnny. It watches for --format key, then it prints all words (with dashes and digits, and even braces) followed by slash or end of line until it reaches any other key. But I did it as part of manual list preparation, after it I did manually checked the list. I think when other lists will be available as options it would be nice to have an option for that list too.
