 {{{I don't think we should allow the user to make his/her password by
 default since it can be insecure.}}}

 This is the worst argument I've heard for not including this feature over
 the years. If a user wants a dumb password, they will go in and place a
 dumb password. Set a secure default all you want, but a stupid user will
 go in and use their stupid password regardless of what you set.
