Patch committed. For a --test run, no action is taken. For a real crack, min-length is bumped and a notice is printed to stderr. This for any format that starts with "wpapsk".

Time for default wordlist + rules went from 2:05 to just 49 seconds.

I really hesitated to print that notice at all, but since you wanted it and I was like 50/50 I decided there were a majority for doing it :-)
