If gksu, xscreensaver, xlock, vlock, cups, sshd, etc. can be
configured to work reasonably with no password I am all for removing
the password.

I remember having to set the password on the Ubuntu live CD to make stuff work.

Still if the password is not written with 10" letters on each console
and the desktop background it is easier to have no password and set it
when you encounter problems rather than have a password which I don't
recall written on the web somewhere I Don't remember.
