That's a very generic package name and should probably say *something*
about how it's a random password generator.

How does this differ from all the random password generators already in
Debian?  Why would I use this instead of one of:

apg - Automated Password Generator - Standalone version
funcoeszz - script with 65 useful mini applications
gpw - Trigraph Password Generator
libpam-pwgen - a password generator
libstring-mkpasswd-perl - random password generator
