Here's another thought:

All GPU formats are non-plugs, so load order is chosen manually in john.c. I think we should register them before all plugins and maybe even before the core formats. This means:

- If you have a GPU build and load crypt-md5 hashes without giving --format, the GPU format will load.
- If we register even before core, NT-opencl will take precedence not only before CPU NT, but also before the LM format.

Thoughts? I can see this is arguable. However, registering eg. wpapsk-opencl before the cpu version is a no-brainer, so I will do some of those if nothing else.
