I've merged this one into the latest jumbo patch - thank you!  I did not
place the john- patch for download separately
because of a few issues I found and fixed while merging this into the
jumbo patch.  You might want to import those fixes and release an updated
patch (call it john-, which I will likely place
into the contrib/ directory on the FTP.

I've added this one to the collection:

You might want to update the documentation to reflect the fact that the
Markov generator is now merged into the jumbo patch, as well as to
provide a short summary and a link to your website (where updated
versions could be found) at the start of the README file.  I will then
update "my" copy.

I've diff'ed Simon's myjohn.tgz of July 23 vs. yours of July 18 (both
were the latest available at the download URLs known to me as of two
days ago).  Most of the differences were a result of Simon merging in my
changes made in 1.7.3+, which apparently were not yet in his tree at the
time you started modifying it.  I found only a few other changes in your
tree, including the addition of HDAA support (but your separate patch
for it appeared to be slightly newer), a bug fix to NSLDAPS_fmt.c (but I
think the same issue was already addressed in the jumbo patch), the
addition of genincstats.rb (which I also dropped into the run/ directory
in the latest jumbo patch, just in case someone finds it useful),
various unintentional and/or local changes, and also the following fix
to params.h:

Simon - besides merging the bug fixes from the jumbo patch, you could
want to disable JOHN_SYSTEMWIDE and revert your change to CFG_FULL_NAME.
These two unexpected changes are very confusing to most people who might
try to use your tree.
