While poking around, I found this dungeon generator, with description of
the workings and the source code:

http://www.rpghost.com/dungeon_gen.shtml

It seems fairly useful, and could be extended to allow for pre-placed
components, thought it is really designed for small dungeons (P&P
roleplaying), and could be very slow if naïvely implemented. It has
plenty of parameters, and you can get a huge variety of room+corridor
dungeons just by changing the numbers. This would be good to give each
level/region a different feel, whilst doing most level-generation with
the same code (easier debugging and maintainance).

Still calls his site to run the actual code, check out some abcgi
mega maps! (seed with 0% random) How cool is that program.
