What better solutions? What password I pick should be none of the 
installer's business.

I find even "your password is weak" complaints to border abuse, enforcing it 
was outright asinine.

If the real issue is remote logins, then we need to just disable remote 
password logins by default (i.e., allow SSH keys only by default). For local 
logins, even the empty string is a reasonable password under some setups.
