So for one single pcap file, you could end up with DMD5 hashes, wpapsk hashes, ntlmv1, krb5 and so on. That would be mighty cool for pentests.

That might be even better. This way you'll have the actual sniffing capability in there too. And it will promote use of JtR to any ettercap user. We should create a wiki page with wanted/done formats. And possibly links to how/what to do, like this:

And perhaps that wiki page could include a brief how-to, like: Where do I start? Is there an ettercap git repo somewhere? Who do I send pull requests to?

BTW I reworked DMD5 recently. I believe it would only work correctly when attacking a single hash until now, due to bugs. OMP support was added too iirc.
