Bug Description

I would like to suggest the inclusion of a PasswordMaker extension.

PasswordMaker is a tool that allows users to create strong passwords and their method can effectively replace the need to store one's passwords. The approach is described here [1], but to sum up: you choose a strong Master Password and then you use PasswordMaker to generate, via hashing algorithms, very long and unique passwords which cannot---computationally infeasible---reveal the MP. Then to log in to a given on-line account, you recreate the password on-the-fly and insert it in the required field. PasswordMaker has various implementations for many platforms (see [1]), including an on-line version [5], and several extensions are available for Firefox [3] and Chromium [4].

Thus I would like to request an extension for Midori. For PasswordMaker adopters this would effectively replace the need for a Opera Wand or LastPass-style password safe.
