ssh wise, Ubuntu's choice is more secure, because it disallows ssh logins if
the local console user did not provide a new password.
I think that using a NULL password like ubuntu do and providing both an
interactive way to change it and a boot parameter could be the way I would
like to have the user password managed.
That way we could have a more secure default image approach, a secure personal
use approach and the ability to set a password easely at build time.
