PEAR can be useful, but the power of PHP is, that is has so many helpful
build-in functions. And with pear, it will always be longer.

To generate random passwords, with characters you decide, and length? I
think it is useful, but usefulness indeed is a good point. Does everyone
here doubt the usefulness?

That is not true, md5 will always return hex, and is of specific length. I
can image users don't want (so much) digits, and/or want to exclude certain
look-alike chars ( 0 (zero) and O (o), for example).
