I'll need to move quite some code from options.c to john.c, so the patch
might be difficult to review (and jumbo diverges even more from core,
but other than that, I see no problem.
(I did, however, not even start with that change.)
If I don't move all the code that is needed only for print_usage from
options.c to john.c, then the only caller of print_usage() would be in a
different file than the definition...
