	I went ahead and did a little hacking and found out that
Cristian's program follows the method that Dave mentioned above. I.E. that
it does NOT CREATE md5 passwords initially after running pwconv5, but on
subsequent password changes will create the MD5 password.
	I'm happy to say that for the most part, everything is working
fine. With some additional components from ftp.replay.com and some other
wacky little stuff I've got Zpop, SSH and SU working.

Thanks to all the people on this list that helped make this a painless
transition! :)
