[Discuss] deadmanish login?

These passwords can be entertaining, and it is tempting to run the 
procedure more than once and pick an attractive output. Ah, beware: If 
you sort for passwords that are attractive you reduce the entropy: a 
cracker can maybe anticipate and so search "attractive" passwords first.

A little frustrating, some passwords I use frequently are cumbersome, 
not sexy like "premium-student-viking". The upside? Maybe I get an 
entropy credit for not being catchy.
