So the default is to disallow logins with an empty password. Note we could also
make really sure and write a disabled password (iow a "*" in /etc/shadow). But
that becomes sort of nasty when someone does a textmode install and forgets
to set the root password in firstboot (textmode firstboot does not mandate on
to go through all the steps).

text-mode firstboot doesn't even *have* a user creation/modification step.

Good point, so this would be something to only do for interactive gui installs,
still I think it is a good idea for that case.
