Ok, this depends a lot of what rules are used. The 8M p/s was the 
default wordlist rules. Best64 is a lot faster:

$ ../run/john -stdout -prince -max-run:10 -v:1 -ru:best64
220957380p 0:00:00:10 0.00% 21493Kp/s aquame22me123

This is much faster than wordlist+rules now. I'll have a look at 
wordlist but I'm not sure I dare touching it...
