Enforce strong passwords

    The WP user form has a nice JavaScript meter to signal the password strength, but it's only advisory. Having security problems with one client, I converted the JavaScript to PHP and wrote some theme code to enforce strong passwords.

    I might wrap it up into a plugin at some point, but surely this is a good security feature to build into the core? Some basics options - on / off, roles to enforce for maybe - should make it flexible. Default settings could help the security level of standard WP installs.
