Subject: "new" libc crypt functions

I wasn't aware of the additions until a few weeks ago, but found out
that pam_unix now offers SHA256 ($5$) and SHA512 ($6$) hashes.  Any
thoughts on implementing them, or what the speed comparison may be to
the blowfish hashes?  Just an interesting development, it's not often
the core libraries offer new encryption methods - used to seeing TLB
or pam_unix2 for alternate hashes.
