[Adduser-devel] Bug#593513: Allow user to set preferred password

Package: adduser

When installing ubuntu, I could, if I choose, to use a password that is
considered insecure, e.g., 123456, though I am warned, I am allowed. After
installing, if I try to change my password to something like 123456 I am
told the password is too simple, and I can't change it. It needs to be one
or the other, personally I don't think I should be told I can't change my
password to 123456, that isn't very free. Tell me I am an idiot, but don't
tell me I can't.

I am using Ubuntu with the latest Kernel.
