we currently use a salted SHA512 hash in hex format for our passwords. 
As passwd currently doesn't seem to be able to deal with that it would 
be great to be able to pass the current password to the database via 
e.g. %c. There a stored procedure takes care of the verify. This gives 
much more flexibility.

You can already pass the password in clear if you set the encryption 
style to 'plain'.
