New Application for SpinBot: Crossword Puzzles

I discovered a new unexpected use for SpinBot: Crossword puzzles.

A basic strategy for thinking of what word might go in a certain space is to create a kind of mental spiderweb in your mind, what words are related, what words seem to mean the same thing, etc.  SpinBot, by rewriting the given phrase / hint, will help to build this mental web.

Spinbot will sometimes condense a phrase, and at other times expand it, which would be useful to get one's crossword creativity juices flowing.
