I think something like this http://hashcat.net/wiki/mask_attack would be more reasonable/realistic. It used to take me 6 hours to brute force a WPA PSK of 8 digits, now I can do it in under 30 minutes.

Let's quote from the page you're linking to: In Mask attack we know about humans and how they design passwords.

Mask attack is NO BETTER than a traditional brute-force attack. You're breaking your own (I sure hope so) WPA key faster only because it's a shitty key.
Attempting to break a sufficiently random passphrase, like RU8wNkg4R2uTQ0tAx will only mean that you'll have to try most of the possible passphrase-space.

I regret to say, the example you posted (breaking a dictionary-based WPA passphrase) is completely orthogonal to bitcoin mining.

Yes, it's certainly interesting, but computationally it appears it can be no more efficient than brute force…
Also, if it does work better than even ASIC brute-force devices, it wouldn't adversely affect Bitcoin, even if Bitcoin doesn't have a contingency plan for partially-breaking SHA-256 yet.
