It is important to add that this is currently available in the git trees
only, both in unstable-jumbo and bleeding-jumbo.  It is not in the
latest jumbo release (which is 1.7.9-jumbo-7).  Please refer to this
wiki page for how to retrieve the git trees:

Also relevant is the script found in the run directory in
unstable-jumbo and bleeding-jumbo.  This is the tool to process Mountain
Lion's .plist files for use with JtR.
