For anyone else reading this thread, the point is that an alphabet
containing more letters means each letter represents more information,
and is therefore more difficult to remember. I'm not saying it's
impossible, obviously, but a 5 character password from an alphabet of
several hundred characters (for example) is both safer and harder to
memorize than a 5 character English-alphabet password.

Yes, and also note that increasing the length of a password has much
greater effect than increasing the size of the alphabet.
