Also possibly worth noting - my workflow typically consists of running
a regular instance of JtR through the '5-minute' phases, then passing
the uncracked hashes on to an MPI cluster.  There is some re-work as
incremental mode passes through the already-tried candidates, but the
intersection is typically small enough that I don't worry about it.
