I can't help contemplating how to avoid the strlen :-)

We do know &word[x+1]-&word[x] already but maybe not currently available 
within dummy_rules_apply(). We could use a wordlist.c-wide "curlength" 
variable that gets set within that #if ARCH_ALLOWS... and the truncation 
in dummy_rules_apply() could check first that the word is not short 
enough already.
