I'm actually optimizing for forgettable, single-use strings which
authenticate public keys which are then added to a local (encrypted)
keystore. In that regard, I'm optimizing for a short length.

I think the wordlist could be further improved, for example by filtering
out longer words and choosing shorter-but-less-popular words.

I made a video I will post soon demoing the UI!
