Both --min-length=N and --max-length=N (and their effect on different
cracking modes (--incremental and --markov / --wordlist and --single /
--external) need to be documented in doc/OPTIONS.

Since we are not running out of space in out --list=hidden-options
output, we might improve the wording for these two options (or refer to
doc/OPTIONS once the documentation exists).

I knew how --min-length=N and --max-length=N work for --incremental and
--markov (tested this in the past).
After my last reply to Jim I tested it with --wordlist (with and without
--rules), and was just thinking about how to test it for --single mode
(since --single doesn't work well with --stdout).

What happens (what is the expected behaviour) if --single or --wordlist
is combined with an --external filter?
