A pass*phrase* like that is certainly much more feasible than a
pass*word*.  But I still think it'd be an effort, for example I'd
estimate a 50-50 chance of a passphrase being forgotten over a two
week break.

And as for the spelling, notice the double-r and double-t, those would
be a source of trouble ;) Without any feedback and only three tries,
this would be rather frustrating.
