Feature request: Stronger passwords from Generator please

I want really really random passwords from the Password Generator. Specifying 2 numbers and 3 symbols (or whatever number) makes them less strong than if I could say at least 2 numbers or at least 3 symbols. I know there's the occasional website that has a maximum, but it would be nice if the number of uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and symbols could all be expressed as minimums.

(FWIW: I also like the ideas in https://discussions.agilebits.com/discussion/comment/363559 regarding a dictionary of characters to use, but I'm stumped at what the UI would look like.)

    @resnick: I think we're all in agreement there. ;)

    Ultimately the strongest passwords will have no character restrictions but you're right that some sites like to nitpick about their composition. I'm not sure what the solution is here (apart from websites adopting better security practices), but it's something we'll continue to explore. Thanks for your feedback on this! :)
