Subject: GUI for dummy format

Aleksey, all -

It appears that a significant number of users who want a GUI intend to
use JtR to test security of various plaintext passwords they can think
of - e.g., just type some password in and have JtR try to crack it.

Maybe your GUI could have some input box where one would be able to type
plaintext passwords (one per line).  The passwords would then be encoded
as $dummy$hex and JtR would be run on them in the GUI.

It may be tricky to fit this in the GUI such that it's immediately
obvious that this functionality is available, yet without cluttering
the main screen.

Then, the same GUI could also be invoking pwqcheck from passwdqc.  That
way, one would see if their desired passwords would be accepted or
denied by passwdqc, and then see how they get cracked or not.  Maybe
pwqgen could be invoked, too.

What do you think?

Is anyone aware of existing GUI apps with this kind of functionality?
