I'm not capable of bringing it to a state good enough for the jumbo 
patch. I'd love it if someone who is actually a coder could give it a 
shot. My code additions for supporting all cracking modes are just 
splitting/leapfrogging logic. Maybe I should cut it down to just that 
again, release a "fullmpi" patch for 1.7.6 and pray that someone takes 
it under his wings.

Patience, young jedi. Since yesterday I do have a working fullmpi8 for 
1.7.6 (it's easy to hand edit the rejects) but I wanted to test it a 
little more before releasing it, sparing you from several silly version 
number bumps that is likely to come. And again maybe I should revert 
some of the cosmetics (like aggregated statistics on SIGUSR1) and go 
back to just support all cracking modes, for a starter. I really want 
the aggregated statistics but it's bundled with a sh!tload of problems 
that I'm not competent to handle well.

Maybe I'll use you for beta testing again :-)
