Perhaps we should add two options to TS:

--reverse   for reversing the wordlist (like you did), and
--shuffle   for shuffling the wordlist

These are easily implemented (especially if we can assume tac and shuf
are present) and can provide extra input when debugging. Actually
--reverse is more important than --shuffle because the former is
reproducible - like in this case, Jim should be able to reproduce the
dynamic problems exactly.
