Because I didn't know that a dependency would be sufficient.  I still can't
see adding a dependency to do something I can do adequately in four lines
of sh, though.  Also, I wouldn't want to use makepasswd because it uses
/dev/random.  I haven't looked at the pwgen source, but I suspect that it
does as well.

Does anyone see any problems with the basic idea?
