Random Password for new users

    Back in the day, before we could choose an admin user name and password, WordPress automatically generated a random password for the user "admin".

    How about leveraging that functionality to generate a random password for new user creation?

    I've found time and time again, when adding new users I have to generate a random string to add their account. A simple "generate password" button on the Add New User page should do the trick.

    Granted there are many single user installs, but I think there are also a fair amount of multi-user installs that this could help improve the experience on. Not to mention it should be very simple to implement.

    This would be super useful and promote better WordPress security. There is a plugin that helps with this but it would be great to see this in core.

    I preffered the auto password generator and considering how dumb some users are when generating passwords I was surprised it changed.

    So yes.
