FWIW, there appear to be man pages for some other GnuPG 2.1.0beta3
binaries that are shipped in libexec. (i'm saying that's good, not
asking you to get rid of them!)
Without some documentation about how to use it (e.g. what the format is
expected for the pattern files) it's hard to say if it would be useful.
Inferring from its help output, it sounds similar in domain to the
cracklib suite. people find cracklib is useful; so i'd guess that this
would be as well.

Thanks for these explanations, that's very helpful.
