This is arguable, but:

1. Would it not be more logical to rename [Options:Markov] to 
[Markov:default]? In Jumbo-5 it's all under just [Options] so there is 
no history of [Options:Markov] that we need to preserve.


2. I think it would be nice to have missing "required" arguments in a 
custom section defaulting to what's in [Markov:default].

That way, I could have a section using another statfile just using this:

Statsfile = $JOHN/rockyou.stats

...and all other parameters would be taken from [Markov:default]. Or 
would that get messy?
