	See man page for chpasswd. The "-e" parameter should only be used when the
password you're submitting IS encrypted, what is not the case. If you look
in my original posting you'll see that my password program doesn't feature
the "-e" option.

"Enormes orçamentos para propaganda somente existem quando os produtos não
se diferenciam. Pois se esses produtos realmente fossem diferentes um do
outro, as pessoas comprariam aquele que é o melhor de todos. A propaganda
ensina as pessoas a não confiarem em seu próprio julgamento. A propaganda
ensina as pessoas a serem imbecis."
