Note that this too has a default format (netntlm, NETNTLM_fmt_plug.c) that exploits a weakness and does not need fast DES at all. The fallback format is where you'd use BS DES, it's netntlm-naive in NETNTLM_old_fmt_plug.c.

OTOH you could have a look at binary() in the "exploit" formats. That's where we brute-force the 2^16 possible block 3 DES keys from the NT hash. Maybe that could be done with BS? It would speed up loading a lot, but not actual cracking.
