Subject: RACF format

Dhiru -

racf_fmt_plug.c needs a proper valid(), not just a check for $racf$.

Also, it could benefit from a prepare() - to extract the username.
Right now, the required input format is:


whereas with prepare() you could make it simply:


and have that converted by prepare() to the representation that embeds
the username internally (for storage in john.pot).

BTW, I see no reason to have a "*" before the username.  Your code could
instead assume that the username starts right after $RACF$ (of course,
if this is the encoding that you'd choose to use).
