We're digressing a bit here, but I don't believe you actually tried
the above more than a few times. Just because a character is printable
doesn't mean you can find it on a keyboard.

>>> string.printable

Good luck with a password consisting of a vertical tab, form-feed and
carriage return :-).


P.S. The dollar symbol isn't on all keyboards, so I'd also remove it
from the list of acceptable characters.
