Unfortunately almost all of the datasets I have access to are web based
accounts. I could simulate truncating hash types, but for most of them I
don't have GECOS information. Also, another worry I have is the way people
create web passwords may be significantly different from how they create
linux/unix accounts, (which I imagine is where Single mode gets the most
use). As you mentioned, the original Single rule-set was trained on Unix
passwords, and I would have to imagine that the original ruleset would
perform better when cracking them then the re-ordered ruleset.
