Subject: optimization idea for salted hashes

It is possible to lift some computations from the loop for some salted

As the base, I consider a loop over all pairs salt + candidate. So if
a part of code is computed only for salt not depending on candidate
then it is possible to precompute it once for each salt. Similarly if
a part of code is computed only for candidate not depending on salt
then it may be computed once per candidate (it may be easy to
implement if we have "for each candidate { for each salt { ... }}"
structure of the loop).

For instance in
dynamic_156	RIPEMD320($s.RIPEMD320($p))
it is possible to pull out RIPEMD320($p) and compute like
$pp = RIPEMD320($p1)
$pp = RIPEMD320($p2)

More interesting case:
dynamic_157	RIPEMD320(RIPEMD320($s).RIPEMD320($p))
It is possible to precompute RIPEMD320($s) once for each hash and
RIPEMD320($p) once for each candidate as above.

The list of dynamics possible for that optimization (based on
$ ./JohnTheRipper/run/john --list=format-details --format=dynamic | cut -f 1,7 | grep '\$s'):

Is the optimization implemented in john?
