Anything that would help me optimize cracking sessions (these are not supposed to be plains, I plan to make a password audit by cracking their hash counterparts, and I've got about 24000 more hashed password from same source).

Run that on your plains and then use the output as a wordlist with some gigantic ruleset like --rules=all (or, for slower hash types, some smaller ruleset with more finesse).

Thanks. I've just gave a try, but the result is not so great. Probably works OK on bigger dumps (rockyou…), but for my relatively small corpus, it does not perform very well.

I'm going to dig there. Thanks for the tip.
