Yup. I simply copied your raw-MD4 implementation and changed like.. 5
lines in code for each of the SHA-2 implementations. It worked for my
needs so I was happy. Didn't submit before because of somewhat
troublesome process for submitting patches. Hope it'll be useful to
anyone now that it's out.
With the new plugin system, hopefully, it'll be much easier in the
future. :-)

Can you please explain on what ALGORITHM_NAME means then? I assumed it's
the length of hex representation of ciphertext. But didn't pay too much
attention to that, as it had no visible effect on cracking.
