Thank you, it's good to know these exist.

I don't find, in the Crypt::XkcdPassword code tree, any documentation
showing where the word lists come from nor how they were computed.

To avoid duplicating these “the N most common words, ranked by
frequency, for language FOO”, it might be better to have simple data
packages in Debian, sourced from appropriate data expertly collected.

Where should such data be sourced from?
