Looking at SIP, it could be added, but it would be very similar to HDAA
(dyna_21).  In hindsight, that format was a mistake to put into dynamic. I
complicated the salt, since it required its own 'magic' salt function. I
would imagine that SIP would be very similar.  I would prefer not to add
that to dynamic, unless there was some overly important reason.  I do not
think it would qualify for SSE (too large).

Also, I think the logic implemented in set_salt should be put into get_salt.
I might look at this function a little.  Redoing the salting functions
should increase the speed a lot.  Move all of that hashing out of the inner
loop, to a 1 time processing.
