This is all a smokescreen. Passwords of insufficient entropy should be a
larger concern.

The FBI has a distributed computing project called Gridnet, for
workstations left on over night. Now, what sort of tasks would the FBI
require a massively parallelized effort to search towards?

I mean, the simplest backdoor would be to require free services to use a
secret salt and a 72-bit user provided secret.
(obviously if you're using a free service, you don't expect much privacy to
begin with, just look at the ads)
