Please take this discussion to john-dev.  While it's not literally John
the Ripper development, it is close enough to that.  john-users is for
topics not involving discussing source code detail (as a maximum, it
may include how to apply a patch for an end-user to get a job done), and
john-dev is precisely for such topics that do involve source code detail.

In fact, some development topics that do not dive into the source code,
such as discussions on whether to add a certain feature or not, are
preferable to have here on john-users rather than unnecessarily limited
to the smaller john-dev sub-community.

So we draw the line at "does this involve discussing source code detail?",
and this works both ways.

Thanks,

Alexander
