Hi Sean

1) Minor API note: I'd expect a dict of hashes to their respective
crypt functions
2) Is there any leverage for possibly including stronger KDFs, such as
scrypt or possibly bcrypt into Python? People have created nice C
bindings for both, and licenses permit it. That would make the crypt
module good for storing passwords too, as well as being good for
comparing them to some particular format.
