Subject: Patch with NUMEROUS options added to John, and a couple bug fixes.

Patch adding a bunch of options, and properly incorporating a few options built in the 'performance patch' into proper john options processing.  Several of these originated from 'Zed..' who contacted me off list, and provided patches.  I took his patches, incorporated into the other things I was working on, and changed them somewhat, so that they properly 'meshed' into john's option structure.

NOTE there is a collision between this patch, and the md5_generic patch, in options.c   No other way around it, one patch or the other will collide, and have to be hand edited (use options.rej to edit the options.c file).

Here are the options added:

  Added the =left to show uncracked hashes

  Allow for a character other than ':' to be a field separator

  Allow for =Section to set a different section to process

Allow for =Section to set a different section to process

  Allow optional MAX, so that re-running a smaller set of salts after doing a larger count will not re-do the hashes of the larger count

  Configurable john.pot name

  Skips dupe checking logic

  Allow setting a different field sep char, other than ':'  Needed for formats which have a salt (or user name), which contain embedded ':' chars.  NOTe will carry over into john.pot.  Will be required to use at all times, when working with said data.

Added ETA time 'guess' to status.c  (i.e. Expected Time of Completion)

Bugs fixed:

A couple bugs computing percentages (very big files, and things like -incremental processing)
A couple of debugging outputs removed (the memory file debugging stuff).

NOTE there was also a bug fixed, which may have been fixed in the new jumbo-6 patch.  I have based these patches on the jumbo-5.

This is pretty much all of the changes I have, with the exception of code that is not finished yet.  I still am working on the Markov performance, and rules processing performance, but am not done with either of them yet  (close, but not completely done).
