I'm not sure why you'd consider reversing the hash.
Having seen people suggest similar things in the past, my assumption is that the reason for this is so that users can log in using only their password. Which is a thoroughly ill-conceived and insecure way of doing things. So, OP, if that was your intention, please don't do that.

    ++ While I don't recall seeing that usage myself, I completely agree with: ill-conceived, insecure and don't do it.

[stevieb]: That worked out exceptionally well, as when I started that project, I hadn't delved into hardware development yet.
[stevieb]: found a issue in MetaCPAN::Client though today for my revdep tests. At least I think it's an issue
[stevieb]: I'm working on hiding the fact the software needs MetaCPAN::Client, as I often have a hell of a time installing it. I'm going to change it to let the user know if they do revdep that it needs to be installed, and remove that distribution ..
[stevieb]: ...from being a prereq
