#33080: User password field is under "About Yourself" heading

 Breaking apart from #WP32589, since probably forever, the "Password"
 fields in `wp-admin/user-edit.php` have been underneath the "Biographical
 Info" field, under the "About Yourself" heading.

 In my opinion, the lack of separation is made more prominent by the
 introduction of "Log Out of All Sessions" button, and the new "Generate
 new Password" button. This is because these two buttons introduce a new
 user experience to a user's profile area: clicking a button to perform a
 task that doesn't involve saving their profile data.

 I'd like to recommend a new heading be introduced to separate out these
 two buttons from "Biographical Info"

 Patch imminent.
