Of course, you were asking about the other direction.

There's not really anything great we can do.  I believe in the past for
rootpw, we stored the encrypted password, indicated in the UI somehow
that there was a password set (with a bunch of dots or something in the
password field), and then if you clicked continue you got the encrypted
password from kickstart.  Or, you got whatever you entered into the UI.

It's not great but it's probably the best we can do.
