	thanks for the feedback! You'll happy to hear that I just spent a few 
hours this weekend adding:
* recovery support
* a progress indicator
* a tool for generating the "stat" file
* a "cleaner" stat file, with less unprintable garbage
* a FAQ (not that crystal clear, but should help you get started ...)

	I'm planning on adding the feature you're asking for in (4), but I 
didn't find a nonexpensive way to do it, so it'll not be effective on 
"fast" hashes. I'm still giving it some thought. For now, I just updated 
(silently) the source.

	About the generation of capital letters, it does generate them, but as 
they were not very likely to appear on my password wordlist they are not 
often encountered when cracking. They do exist however, just run:

./john -stdout -markov:100 | grep '[A-Z]'

	If capital letters are often found in your environment, it is strongly 
suggested that you create your own stat file!
