I found the SHA1 list to be more "meaningful" for testing john and
other dictionaries as there was a lot more found not using
dictionaries and jtr rules. The md5sum ones turned into basically over
60-70% of the megadictionaries from various places+jtr rules. which
basically made looking for things silly.
