I'm against adding additional methods to the crypt module.

- libcrypt / libxcrypt are unreliable providers. The library is only available on Unix-like platforms, not on Windows. Available algorithms are not consistent, e.g. some platforms only provide old, bad implementations. Others only support a limited subset or disable some algorithms in their crypto policies.
- We still plan to deprecate and remove the crypt module because it's not reliable.

I suggest that you rather create a PyPI package with yescrypt implementation that does not rely on libcrypt.
