Subject: RE: memory usage within JtR and possible ways to significantly reduce it.

Here is the simple change to get the get_source function working properly in
self test.  In the self-test code, I was able to pass the salt. I believe
the logic will be that if salt pointer is non null, then that data will be
used.  Otherwise if the salt pointer is null, then the data from the last
(current) call from set_salt will be the data to use when rebuilding a
salted hash.

I have not done a salted hash just yet, Once I do a couple salted hashes (I
will likely start by doing most of the dynamic's), then I will for sure that
these methods work the way I think they will.
