It was supposed to be an open question. Right now I'm toying with
password generators based on first order markovian filters, that seems
to work better than -inc on two accounts:
* find more passwords in a given time (got to test some more)
* work could easily be distributed
But not as good for:
* generating candidate passwords fast (although I'm sure that a bit of
tweaking would help here)
* working an indefinite amount of time
