While the feature request is relevant to John development, I think that
these should be on john-users, not john-dev.

john-dev is for discussions of John source code - stuff that would be
boring and not useful to end-users who don't read/write code.  It is not
for feature requests that don't yet contain any code snippets, etc. -
these are better posted to john-users.

Now, I did post a request to Jim to consider some new dynamic formats in
here recently, but that one had relatively little to do with John users'
immediate needs.  It was rather "can we have dynamic equivalents of
these two formats that Dhiru coded in C?", expecting development-focused
discussion as a result, and also I provided a JtR source code patch
allowing for implementing one of them right away (thus making the
message inappropriate for john-users, considering that the patch was not
meant to be immediately useful for the users - unlike e.g. stuff that
Dhiru is announcing on john-users).

So let's try to keep more topics on john-users.  Just not discussions of
the source code.
