I feel bad about not getting Deepika's work included in Jumbo. It's a very skilled contribution compared to to the trivial OpenSSL-powered formats that we are used to. Leaving it in limbo discourages future contributions - from her and from others.

Besides that, it appears to give 2x on single salt and 10x on multiple salts.

I understand it's not trivial though. I am not quite sure what needs to be done to actually add it to Jumbo. Apparently it only builds using generic. Is there anything I can do, or anything we could ask Deepika to do, to help this forward?
