Make administrator password generation customizable as regards which characters to include or exclude

ID vault has the ability to generate very strong initial passwords (mixture of upper / lower case letters and digits).

A lot of organizations have a password policy (thank you SOx) which stipulate the inclusion of one or more " special" characters (!"£$%^&*{}[]@#~:?<>\/).

Unfortunately, this makes the Random Password generator in the Admin client useless (it will fail with Password does not meet the requirements for any account with a password policy that requires any number of special characters).

The random password generator needs to be able meet the policy requirements so one solution could be additional admin settings that the random password generator takes into account (ie its seeding list) prior to generating a new password.  eg

list of none alphanumeric characters to consider=<list of special characters>

list of alphanumeric characters to exclude=iIljo

The later item allows exclusion of characters that are hard to identify accurately in certain fonts causing much confusion, annoyance and time wasting.
