Hmm...you know, there actually is such a tool in existence. Several,
actually. They are used for cracking passwords, and you can find several at
freshmeat.net (search combinations on password, text, generator, and crack).
You might find one that actually lets you supply the rules. The only problem
is that they might not print nicely to stdout (that is, your screen). In
which case, find a buddy over at the CSci department of BYU to customize it.
Or maybe just ask them to make one from scratch; it should be easier than a
random generator, since you don't need to worry about the random part.
