In general I agree with the above, but if the PoC is all you need and it
should be fairly easy to figure out what to do, I would
treat formats as a blackbox backend and create a new frontend with
communication, candidate preparation and multithreading support.
If you look how formats integrate with John you can use similar approach
and connect calculating f(password, salt) to anything you want.
GPU stuff would need more plumbing, but is doable. Such PoC frankenstein
would be a separate binary living in John's source tree.
