I may be even more rusty than you...but, wouldn't the following be right?
sed 's/ /\\n/g'
Alas. Doesn't work ;)
I know of no way to specify a substitution like this in a shell script, but
when i need to do something like this i do:

sed 's/ /\<press enter here>

I know it's ugly - but hey, it works ;)

on any modern Unix variant you can create a wordlist from a textfile
by piping it through

  tr -s '[:space:]' '[\012*]'|sort -u

And to get back a bit to the origial question: Another good source
for a custom dictionary for password attacks can be a stroll on the
company parking lot and looking for the license plates.
