Description: passwd -- change login password.

passwd changes the password or lists password attributes associated with the user's login name (userid) <- Not yet implemented.

When used to change a password, passwd prompts everyone for their old password, if any. It then prompts for the new password twice.

If executed by a user with USER_PRIV_ADMIN() privilege flag (i.e. super-user), the old password prompt does not appear.

Passwords must be constructed to meet the operating system requirements
