My weak English makes me think your comment is rude. Please excuse
me then if this is not.

I don't really understand the need for turning your comment this way,
which indeed doesn't make your point clear, whether you agree or
disagree with the idea of default enforcement of 8 characters length
for passwords. 

It seems you disagree, but don't really give a rationale for it except
"some other programs we have in Debian default to 6 chars". Am I right?

(BTW, this "makepasswd" doesn't seem to be isntalled by default)
