Yes, I think if external mode lacks a generate() function, mask mode is
the generator.
If external mode has a generate() function, the mask must contain either
"?w" or "?W".
For --regex it would be similar. If the external mode has a generate()
function, it is the generator, and --regex must contain "\0".
