Hello,

	I thought about adding the "minlen" parameter. This would however be 
costly on the password generation side (same problem than minlevel), and 
would not improve the performance that much, because there are *much* 
more long passwords than short ones in a given run.

	If I find an elegant way to do this I'll implement this feature.

PS: yes i upload new versions silently, as this is not supposed to be 
some kind of "release" but just my test tree at a given time.
