I missed the beginning of this thread? Who says you can't pass colons
to crypt? Crypt can encrypt arbitrary files, it's got zilch to do with
passwords. Colons may not be allowed in passwords but that has nothing
to do with crypt. Since I don't know the context of this I don't know
why this would be an issue.
