The password tool appears to only use alphanumerics (or I just experienced a statistical anomaly), seems like it ought to.

No, you're right it does not, mainly because I usually don't put them in my passwords. Right now it forces at least one number and one uppercase.

Would it be possible to define the number of characters and password complexity by typing a command such as "!pw 12 Strong" where Strong means uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and special characters, Average means numbers, uppercase and lowercase letters and Weak means uppercase and lowercase letters only?

I think that's a good implementation idea and makes a lot of sense. Will do!
