Super - thanks for this

Could you please consider taking just the blowfish part of my previous
patch.  Although arguably the SHA hashes are "stronger", the blowfish
implementation is used in many web libraries and seems the most
standardised hash (in fact so far I don't see any web libraries using
SHA?).  The benefit is that it's then easy to say have a web application
update some hash in a database, it's then automatically supported by any
application checking using the libc crypt function?

Cheers
