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

reassign 385628 user-setup

Quoting Mike Hommey (mh+reportbug@glandium.org):
> 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.

This suggestion seems fair. It will annoy me a *little* when testing d-i
as I always enter the same simple data there but it seems worth it.
