I don't know if it's possible, and I understand there are some technical issues, but would it be practical to have a sort of half-way option for those of us that do end up with longer runs for whatever reason?

Specifically:

1) Assume a user has a known starting command line, and a fixed dictionary, rules, OS, and hardware.

2) I am assuming, perhaps falsely, that if the user does this five times, I am assuming that internally, the same order will be followed; perhaps it's difficult to predict, but the same order nonetheless.

3) I am assuming, perhaps falsely, that it would be possible to track approximate progress somehow (percentage, number of tries so far, any other number that's meaningful here and isn't based on time)

4) I am assuming that the bulk of the time is spent actually doing the hashing.

5) Therefore, if these assumptions are all true, I suggest that maybe it would be possible to add a parameter for the approximate progress to date. Then oclhashcat-plus could use a "null" hash for that amount of progress, and the actual hash for the remainder. Either a branch could be put inline, or the "null" hash could perhaps be used to get to the state for the real hash, and then the "real" code could be substituted with that state?
