buster, parkr - what does dictionary.mmd do? After three iterations, mine is 66 megabytes (I have a large corpus), and I'm trying to figure out what to do to keep it manageable.

e: looks like there is an option in markymarkov to replace permanent dictionary w/ a temp one: https://github.com/zolrath/marky_markov
