I am affraid that such changes will not be merged. The proper way of
doing that, would be move all logic from *2john to JtR itself, but
this is unlikely to happen for many reasons. For now we prefer *2john
tools. Solution you are trying to implement is not a good idea.
Another thing is that your code has at first sight problem with buffer
overflow and unsecure handling of temporary files.

It's great that you are trying to contribute, but I would suggest
taking look at issues on magnum's github repository (we have 108
opened issues at the moment):
You can find there request for new formats as well.
