My point is that `apg` already provides all required features and - to 
my understanding - `apg` is also available in all linux distributions. 
Why invest time and effort in `pwgen` instead?

Of course, it is possible to implement this in `pwgen`, also.
One has to change the central generator function interface `(char 
*inbuf, int size, int pw_flags)` to also contain a character set for 
symbols (which is consequently no trivial flag) and implement the 
corresponding functionality in the random and the phonem generator.
