password policy - alternate lockout mechanism


The current password policy module can lock folks out after some
configurable number of failed attempts.  The module currently does not
differentiate between a user failing with the same wrong password a
bunch of times versus a crack attempt where someone tries multiple
different wrong passwords.  Are there any modules that take into
account if the same password is being used a bunch of times or if
multiple different passwords are failing?  Could this be a useful
feature worth requesting (if it doesn't exist already)?

Thank you,
