Looking onto passwords with logins together I found that in the contest
were many passwords that were any cased and leeted login with 1
special char appended. It seems to be a pattern and it seems to be
hard to find it without a look on password and login together. So I
think it would be good to add manipulation of pairs instead of
just passwords into scripts for search patterns.
