Thanks, I was already starting to wonder how I could get that wrong.

BTW, I noticed you renamed the subformats raw-sha256 and raw-sha512 to
cryptsha256 and crypt512.

Why? So that I can learn how to resolve merge conflicts?
(I'll figure that out, no problem.)

I thought that the "raw" is an attibute of the format (as in "no salts,
no iteration count").
That's why I wanted to name those crypt subformats exactly like the formats.

Otherwise, you'd have to rename --subformat=des to --subformat=cryptdes
and --subformat=md5 to --subformat=cryptmd5 as well.
And I think this would create additional confusion instead of reducing
confusion (which is what I wanted to achieve with renaming those
subformats to raw-sha*).
