Oh, it's being changed now, by me. I recently renamed the file and put
another trust-related function there. I'm also going to rename the
just_change_the_password() and (possibly) give it more general shape
to use it with domain trusts, as well.
In summary: I'm working there, right now :) ... and agree -- the names
have been horrible, so far.
