The quick change I did, was to make a structure, that holds the 2 strings (dynamic and static), and the sizes.  It does fully contain the string information for each string, they are not simply pointers.  However, I put the hash being in the salt,  will cause the salt dupe logic to not work. 

For this format, 'detection' should be done in the normal way, with binary, binary hash, and with cmp_all/one/exact comparing the binary final result to the binary value returned from binary()

For a lot of the recent formats, they have been SO slow (in  computational complexity), that some allocations, a few hash computations here and there within set_salt has not really mattered all that much   But for a fast format, it 'really' matters a lot.
