When trying to run a breach simulation on a set of password hashes I have which I'm doing white-hat hacking stuff on, the hashes are all argon2id and not having this in John is problematic - using other tools exhaust >= 32GB of memory, which causes issues with attempting to crack it.

I wouldn't call it a bug - it's an issue, and a missing desirable
feature.  I agree it's been hanging around for way too long, given it's
fairly important.  We do not have specific timelines for any JtR
development tasks, however we assign some to milestones - this one is
currently tracked among tasks that we intend to take care of before we
make the next release.  There's no timeline for that release, though.

You letting us know that you require this functionality is a reason for
us to prioritize it.  Thank you for that.
