Until now I managed to stay away from this, but I now have a solid implementation that I plan to commit after optimizing and testing quite a bit more. It's not invasive though, it's very simple (stripped down pieces from unique.c) and will be trivial to back out of if/when you implement this in core JtR. The "closed loop mode" is curious without dupe detection, but it really rocks with it. magnum
