How hard would it be to allow to pass in a pre-hashed password ?
we use sysdb_cache_password in the tool which
create sha512 salted hash itself before storing it to cache.
IMHO, it would not be a a problem to pass pre-hashed password
We might want to check that it's valid sha512 or we can skip validation
and store it to directly as string.
So answer is it will not be hard but also probably not a high
priority. Feel free to file a ticket.
