comment Hash function change
What is the benefit of gradual migration? Only benefit I see is that after given period of time I will be able to "retire" the old password scheme. But why do I need to do so? I already have the methods for using it, so it doesn't bother me.

Thanks for the clarification. I will definitely take that into consideration.

Thanks. Why do you recommend bcrypt over SHA-2 (and soon SHA-3), which is NIST standard for cryptographic hash? Is it (only) because bcrypt can be made arbitrarily slow?

Old hash is unix crypt (DES based) and new is not decided yet. Salt is random for each user.
