  Can you send some sample SSHA passwords?  e.g. ones where the password is “test” or “hello”,   Include the salt, the hex form of the SHA2 password, the clear-text password, and which SHA method you used.

  We’ll use that to create test vectors.

  This code should go into the next release of version 2.  Security things like this are OK.
