As you point out, a better cryptographic linkage between blocks would 
force the attacker to search the full password space for a given multiblock
password rather than break it down into separate 8 byte searches.  We will 
incoporate this into our next release.  Thanks for the feedback.  

Why not just use md5 instead?
