Nova install and blank mysql root passwords

While writing automation scripts for installing nova, I am running
$ openstack-nova-db-setup --novapw nova --rootpw "" --yes
my problem is this script prompts for a password if the mysql root
password is a zero length string. This patch allows the root password to
be a zero length string.
Any thought? should this change go into the openstack-nova package or is
it a bad idea to allow blank passwords?
in my case mysql had already been installed with a blank root password
before running this script so I had to pass in the blank password.
