While I feel your feature is convenient, I see the potential for your
simple function to grow into it's own program. Akin to pwgen.

If pass-generate had it's own man page it would be full of options,
such as: -d  dictionary  declare a custom dictionary; -p  polite  only
generate non offensive words; -b  buffer  insert a custom buffer from
.config/pass-generate. Ad nauseam.

Standing up to a dictionary attacks would be an on going battle.

Side note: If you wrote it in rust-lang, I would contribute.  

At your service,
