"Bad password" is too vague. This message needs to explain that the password
isn't strong enough to meet some basic tests, not just that it's bad.
I see. as you said, only "Bad password" is too vague, but "msg" can explain something.

Plus, I'd like to see an easy option (something I could put in the boot
conf) to make continuing with a weak password not an option.
Isn't it acceptable for you that Type of messageWindow is "yesno" ?

I wrote this messageWindow example...

1. When password is based on a dictionary word like
   "anaconda" the following messageWindow is shown up.
|-----------------------------------------------|
|Bad Password                                   |
|-----------------------------------------------|
|BAD PASSWORD: it is based on a dictionary word |
|Would you like to continue with this password? |
|                               | No | | Yes |  |
|-----------------------------------------------|

2-1. If "No" button is pressed, you need to retry to input a password.
2-2. If "Yes" button is pressed, you do NOT need to retry to input a
     password, you can use a dictionary word password like "anaconda".

I'm sorry for my poor English, and if I misuderstood what you mean,
please let me know.

thank you,
