Comment (by adamsilverstein):

 Thanks! This looks really good, I love the idea of abstracting the
 functionality so we can use it everywhere we create passwords in core.

 Wondering if should namespace into wp global to make object wp.passwords?
 Also, maybe move to wp-util instead of user-profile.js? Will
 plugins/themes be able to leverage the password generator?

 I will review in more detail, test and see about extending to other
 password fields to see how straightforward that is.

 Thanks for keeping this ticket alive :)

 24633.23.patch] is my first pass at creating an abstracted password
 generation API that will make it much simpler to add password generation
 to profiles, user registration, user creation, etc.
 > To set up password generation, we can call the new `passwords` object
 like so:
 > {{{
 > passwords.init( '#pass1', '#pass2', '#generate-password' );
 > }}}
 > The first password, confirmation, and submit field selectors are passed
 as parameters to the function, which will then handle generating the
 password, checking the strength, and displaying the results.
 > Would anyone like to lend their opinions of this initial approach?
