I have two notes : * It would be really nice to be able to provide the number of shards, number of nodes and current node identifier on the john command line. This would require thinking a bit about how the interface should look like, because it should be the same for markov and wordlist (with rules) mode. * With incremental not limited to 8 characters anymore you will overflow uint64_t with 95**10. While it is pretty unlikely the whole password space will be explored, it would be nice to be able to start exploring it.
