We could also use eg. -mask=?d?d?w?d?d which is not supported by HashCat's hybrid mode. I like the proposed syntax, but given that ?w corresponds to a variable-length portion this means that our set_mask() interface needs to allow for specifying of character positions relative to the current length of the host-provided portion. I guess that's fine - we'll just need to support it. Alexander
