Let's implement the core approach for this sprint and add a new feature issue on Github for the jumbo approach and assign to the next sprint.

For core approach, create a new JohnHandler that will run every time new password files are opened(thus a new session) and grep the output for the default attack format. Use it in the UI and elsewhere.

Use magnum's approach , `john -stdin hashfile <<< ""` , if it is the minimal overhead one.

magnum, what did you mean by:

As I take it, empty passwords for the default format will be already shown as cracked before the user starts an attack.
