For now, the personal desklock password is, more or less, a temporal

As I'm not the one coding this I probably don't have much input ;),
but IMO the only password allowed should be the already setup user
password, not Yet Another Password that the user has to define and
remember (though they could use the same password as their account
password, but then that opens up 'security' issues with who gets
access to where this password is stored, is it encrypted, etc.).
