AFAIK, the "good guys" point is to break your users' weak passwords before an attacker does.

Obviously, these very same attackers will also be using the tool...

Better to have the tool the 'bad guys' use available to the 'good guys'. If this weren't published and advertised the bad guys would still have equivalent functionality, but most admins wouldn't.
