Current bleeding-jumbo includes this. My first version did not have any 
bitmap-aware code path (I had the idea it wasn't doable with the data at 
hand) but once I saw sync times of 150 *seconds* (wall clock time of 
syncing 2,800 pot entries to a process with some 650,000 NT hashes 
loaded iirc), I realized I just had to do fix that. Using the bitmap, 
the same operation went down to 10 milliseconds, lulz %-)

I still see one case of performance hit: If I attack the Gawker dataset 
starting with an empty pot file and running single mode, the first 
couple of minutes have a few occasions with up to 3.8 seconds of sync. 
But on the other hand, tens of thousands of passwords are removed in 
that time and if it wasn't for the fact salts are so heavily reused we'd 
got a great win from removed salts. So I think this should default to 
being active with no special options.
