 generate passwords using LastPass rather than WordPress, partially because
 I can share it to another LastPass user without using E-Mail, and
 partially because I can control how long and complex it is.

 I hear ya! I'm also a lastpass fan and would rather not disable it -
 although I would note that you can still use if with the autofill turned
 off on these fields, you would have to use the extension/add on icon to
 activate the generate password feature.

 what about if lastpass was active, putting the eye/visibility icon a bit
 to the left or right of the lastpass icon (meaning you would have two
 icons in the field - is that too weird? or put it outside the field if
 lastpass active, inside otherwise?
