Subject: Re: auditing our use of FMT_* flags

Just did a quick check.

This hash:

"$K4$e35e9294ecef926d,0123", "U*U*U*U*"

binary() returns this e35f9395edef936d00480008

My code can not find the binary string in the original hash, so no work 
is done.  The format binary size is 12. Nowhere in the hash is there a 
24 byte long hex string to start with.
