This would be very easy to add as a 'native' format.  Also, handling the 
proper max length password based upon SSE build (vs non-SSE), is easy to do.

Speaking of this (ablity to optionally compile the builtin, based upon SSE 
or non-SSE compiles), it might be good to add some ways to detect and 
possibly have different logic within the script loaded generics.  I have 
some ideas, but it is a little OT to this thread.

Jim.
