In case anyone wonders: I committed Jim's patch to bleeding-jumbo but 
later reverted it because there were problems with --show that might not 
be fixable without hacking core. We'll ponder that for a while. In the 
meantime, the workaround is back to using the cracked entries as a 
wordlist for another crack, which will get the crippled/uncrippled dupes.

Dang, for a while I thought this idea was beautyful.

Lacking that, I also tried implementing the second-best alternative to 
magnum-jumbo: Always store a crippled hash. But it turned out this has 
very similar problems so that was never committed.
