 Design questions on this:
 - Do we want a password of only spaces/space-like characters (e.g. tabs
 maybe if pasted in) to be allowed? Or should we forbid passwords being set
 if they would be "empty" after being trimmed?
 - If the second case, then when creating the user, should the feedback to
 the user change at all, since they did enter a non-empty password and the
 error message would be "password empty"?
 - Should the updating user page be able to update (e.g. click the button)
 if the only thing updated is the password, and it's an invalid password
 (e.g. will be trimmed to nothing, not updated)?
