That's easily achieved by an additional 'force user' I

I don't like the idea to put passwords into secrets.tdb, as
we have to do it per share, and we already have a perfect
infrastructure for storing and verifying passwords in place
for users.

I did not yet code that up, so I might revert my idea later,
but I think duplicating what we've done in passdb is just no
good idea.
