I'm working on Litecoin mining on Parallella, then I will await up you
discuss about the integration. About this I can say that if CKolivas apply
my patches to CGMiner, we can just add a CGMinerPATH option to john.conf
that points to CGMiner install path and also add a CGMiner version check
then if JtR detect a correct CGMiner version will use the integration. Then
we can keep CGMiner away from the JtR tree.
