Bug#385628: debian-installer: Should incite the user to use different password for root and for the initial user

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist

When asking the initial user password, it would be a good idea to check
if the password is the same as the root password, and if it is, tell the
user this may not be a good thing and ask if he is sure he wants to use
the same password.

It could be checked at the first input, avoiding the user to type twice
the password before being told it was bad, and if he indeed is sure
he wants to use the same password, there's actually no need to ask him
the second time.
