I have started this project, I thought I'd include the list before I got much
further to make sure the style I'm using was palatable for the community,
I think it's pretty simple, with examples I've tested. One small question
I've had in that testing, is about the GECOS field. Is this always after the
"fifth" colon, or will it vary from patch to patch in jumbo? I've tried adding
the plain-text passwords to my examples in that field whenever -single
was able to crack them; however it doesn't always do so when they are
included in the 5th field, and I've tried 3-7 as well.
