This is a very important consideration. I like to be able to copy
passwd lines between NetBSD and FreeBSD, for example.
I realize that I can set the defaults to md5, even if the default
default changes to blowfish. But given that blowfish is a boutique
cipher, I would want to see a strong argument that there is something
wrong with the md5 method before changing the default. (Sorry if this
has been made and I missed it.)
