Rafael - please don't make any changes to address Lukas' suggestion
above yet.  We need to discuss first.  Meanwhile, I assume that you
proceed with work on other aspects of this task (including other issues
Lukas brought up) and on the Litecoin mining on Parallella task.

Lukas - like I said, we need to discuss.  I think getting those 138k
lines in is not necessarily worse than the alternative you propose.
These approaches have their pros and cons, and I admit that the whole
idea of having this functionality in JtR is questionable (yet we're
experimenting with it).
