Forcing a minimum password length

You recommend requiring a 15-character password, but Group Policy only allows you to specify a 14-character password as the minimum. How do I force a minimum password length of 15 characters?
As far as I know, to force the use of a 15-character password you will need to purchase a product that does so or write your own software. However, nothing says you can't "require" a 15-character password. You just may not have the ability to technically control it with ease.
