Jumbo have custom character classes, configurable in john.conf. You
could do it like this:

0 = [aeiouy]

...then just use ?0 instead of ?v

BTW, if you give --encoding=iso-8859-1 (or shorter --enc=ansi) the y
will be treated both as vowel and consonant (as it can be either). This
too is Jumbo-only. It will also treat 8-bit vowels like ü, ß and ö as
vowels or consonants. That won't currently work for -enc=utf8 though, as
the rules engine can't handle multibyte characters.
