Alexander,

If making a -2 revision change, should that be made under the assumption the 
user
has installed -1 or should it be against a 'clean' system (i.e. prior to 
phpass-md5
format source being patched in) ?

I have made copyright changes listed below.  I also added gethash() and 
binary_hash()
functions, as loading a large set of hashs was SLOOOWWW (non hashed search).

I am ready to turn in -2 version, and only need to know how the patch file 
should
exist.

Jim.
