Password complexity requirements

Regarding "Passwords must meet complexity requirements" ... Can part of the complexity requirements, such as account ID or user name, be excluded so that a user can use their user ID or name as part of the complex password?
You'll have to write your own complexity requirements using the tools included in the Windows 2000 Software Development Kit. However, your idea is insecure and I don't recommend it.
