I did not say it explicitly, but probably I should: I'd appreciate it if
this gets merged into bleeding-jumbo, and I'd appreciate testing
(although I did quite some of it myself) and feedback.  Especially
useful is testing of the obscure cases, such as restoring from previous
JtR version's .rec files in both cracking and --stdout modes, then
interrupting, then restoring again.  Also extreme speeds (both slow and
fast), extreme hash counts, etc. - to catch possible overflows, use of
non-optimal number formats (e.g. too few meaningful digits), etc.
I tested for these things myself already, but I may have missed
something.  Also, testing of the single crack mode, since it had changes
made to it (these shouldn't affect what passwords it cracks - if they
do, it's a bug).
