Subject: Re: FormSpring valid()

Btw, magnum made a recent improvement to pass_gen that makes it 
wonderful for building test strings (the -vector switch).  This was made 
possible when I recently made a unified output function.  Since every 
format (well almost every format) in pass_gen passes through that single 
outputting function, switching over to a format test string compatible 
method was simple and really (REALLY) makes a lot of sense for someone 
working at improving format test cases.

$ echo -n test | run/ formspring -vectors

So it is already prepped and ready to drop right in a format file.
