Slight Indexer Change

I think I’m going to have the Indexer generate an index for prefix lengths 1, 2, and 3.  That way, it’ll be much easier to switch between them at generation time, which will let me play around more.  I don’t think it’s necessary to go to lengths of 4 or more, as those lengths are unlikely to produce the level of crazy that I’m looking for here.

Furthermore, I realized that selecting the suffix based on probability vs. even distribution is something that can be handled strictly at generation time.  Just pull the list of possible suffixes in to a set, and choose from there.  It’s not as efficient as pre-calculating the two types at generation time, but it’s easier to do.

Remember, it’s not about getting it done right, it’s about getting it done right now.
