Actually, the same problem is present in almost(?) all of your formats.
I think the majority of them did not have to use this hack.  Even things
like VNC and SIP can probably be implemented without this hack.  Can you
please correct them all?  Please start with normal hashes
(wbb3_fmt_plug.c, racf_fmt_plug.c, episerver_fmt_plug.c, django_fmt.c),
then proceed with other stuff (anything that has the cracked[] array is
a candidate for a fix, if at all possible).
