RE: salt length limitation
absolutly. depending on the algorithm, maximum salt length can range from 15 to 31.

Thanks a lot atom,

Do you plan to increase it in the future (some webapps already implement salt of 40 or more) ?
Even if we loose in term of perf, it would be interested to at least try it.

Regards.
