If you chance your mind and choose to use a full solution, then I highly
recommend passlib [1]. It has an implementation of SHA-512 crypt as
indicated by the number 6 in the header of your string.

By the way "$6$ds41p/9VMA.BHH0U" is *not* the salt. Just
"ds41p/9VMA.BHH0U" is the salt, 6 is a hash identifier.
