To clarify, if the unverified account had authenticated once bcrypt
was available they would have transitioned from MD5AM and MD5AM2?

Also bcrypt wasn't available in PHP until v5.5 according to and if correlating
their repository logs to PHP release timelines proves that they didn't
"reinvent the wheel" then an apology should be made on Graham's blog
don't you think Per? :)
