Also the feature of using data mining and machine learning would be great.
Many users have the same user/pass for different services (and, as
mentioned, sometimes different services use the same auth backend). This
could also provide a way of learning which of the passwords are the most
used and, before a good number of tests, these most used passwords could be
attempted first.

This could take advantage of honeypot-machines also to see, which are the most
tried passwords in brute force attacks from the bad guys.
