I am puzzled why people are making those "wordlist generators".  Can't
they read the documentation for JtR to learn of the --stdout option?
Can't they write trivial Perl scripts or use JtR external mode to
generate all sorts of candidate passwords that are not based on mangling
words from a wordlist (e.g., all possible birth dates)?

This FTS-WS-DicTool.c is an order of magnitude larger than an equivalent
set of Perl scripts would be for the few things that can't be achieved
with JtR's cracking modes and --stdout.
