I have followed along on some of these interface changes, and many seem very good. Others, I simply do not know the 'why' or behind the scene need, so I will simply watch them being used. >BTW, bleeding currently lacks source() for LM hashes (I guess since this >was a bit non-trivial to implement, requiring DES final permutation), That was exactly why. LM would have been good, since there are some larger lists, but I was uncomfortable with the complexity needed. >so >merging the changes from core (which include this) will also be an >improvement for bleeding. Agreed. Jim.
