In going through this data.. I think there is a lot of chaff in the
md5 passwords. It looked actually like someone had taken the KoreLogic
dictionary set from the 2010 contests and md5sum'd it 1:1. While some
of those are probably passwords.. other items (like the md5summing of
all the facebook accounts) might introduce more noise than is useful.
