Right. I am too busy with other things.
If I had time, I would prefer to add new/enhanced functionality.

One other format which still needs an improved valid() is episerver
(looks like the inappropriate name will stay).
episerver_fmt.c's valid() also just contains
return !strncmp(ciphertext, "$episerver$", 11);

Almost everything you find using

grep -C 2 "return\s*\!strncmp(ciphertext" *.c

(except dynamic_fmt.c) needs to be fixed
