Comitted. Beware that it needs more review and testing before
considering it somewhat secure (well we don't really need to be more
secure than firmware password unless we're firmware).
Additionally using plaintext support (currently the only supported) is
a bad practise. I'll look if I have time to implement a form of
cryptographic password (e.g. scrypt) before 1.97 freeze.
