#760 Allow minimum # of password character types to be zero


Currently, the minimum number of upper case alphabetic, lower case alphabetic and numeric characters or symbols (if selected) is one. I would like this to be zero. This would allow a generated password to contain the specified type of character but also for there not to be one of one or more specific type.
For example:
Today, I can specify that a generated password has at least 1 upper case and 1 lower case character but I can't specify that it must contain upper and lower case characters but I do not mind if they are all upper case, all lower case or a mixture of cases.
This would be resolved if the minimum number was set to be zero allowing characters of this type to be selected but without placing a minimum number required.
