I agree that we need a way to update passwords without
administrator intervention.  There has been some discussion
as to whether passwords belong in individual Profile or
"user preferences" pages, or if they belong in a global
file such as SiteAdmin.AuthUser .  Even after thinking
about it for many years, I'm not sure I know the answer to
that one yet.
