Subject: dynamic_2000 - dynamic_2014

Apparently, formats dynamic_2000 - dynamic_2014, defined in
run/dynamic_flat_sse_formats.conf re-implement dynamic_0 - dynamic_14.

These formats are slower, but allow longer passwords.

Unfortunately, these formats use different canonical hash
representations than the dynamic_0 - dynamic_14 formats.
Probably this means, dynamic_2000 will not recognize cracked dynamic_0
hashes in the pot file, and vice versa.

Is there an easy way to avoid this, without putting the burden to
remember an work around the pitfalls on the user?
E.g., what needs to be done so that dynamic_2000 can use a $dynamic_0$
prefix as well?

And shouldn't the test suite be adjusted, so that the dynamic_0 -
dynamic_14 tests are reused for dynamic_2000 - dynamic_2014?
(Of course, dynamic_2000 - dynamic_2014 should also have additional
tests which include passwords with the extended max. password length.)
