You could do like I do on Freedombone and maybe have an initial default
ssh login, but the first time the user logs in it changes the password
to something random and displays the new password so that they can copy
it into a password manager. That avoids the problem of weak passwords
and universal defaults. Also it might be an idea to have a ssh/dialog
based setup for the initial account creation.
