How "disrespect"? It is not related to it.

`pwgen' is system command, good for let us say shell, but Emacs is
much more and is integrated into database on my side. If then Emacs
Lisp programs run on different systems, I like if they don't depend on
too many external commands, especially one as simple as password

I cannot write `ffmpeg' so I convert videos by using Emacs Lisp on
remote computers calling external `ffmpeg'.
