Some formats depend on set_key() having been called for all N keys before crypt_all(N) is called. May be we should document what a format implementation can safely rely on. This does not just make the job of implementing new formats or tuning existing formats easier, but also allows to create more robust self tests. Of course, the definition of what a format implementation can safely rely on needs to be considered carefully, to avoid unnecessary overhead in john's architecture. Frank
