Password kwalitee

There've been a few complaints about the password quality checks being too strict, or rejecting secure passwords while accepting insecure ones, or whatever. However, for obvious reasons no one has wanted to tell us exactly what password they tried and had rejected, or what insecure password they're currently using.

If anyone wants to construct reproducible examples of the password checking being dumb which do *not* involve passwords you actually are using or want to use, and post the details, the chances of anything happening rises drastically.

(One problem with the checking is that it doesn't ensure that you're not using something based on your username or realname. That's a known problem, and is being fixed, so don't bother reporting it.)
