Thank you so much for doing this. The main issue I have with it is the
new password_will_be_nt_hash logic. This seems to me to be a horrible
This however isn't an objection, assuming you tell me (as I trust you
will) that all the other options were even worse.
I am very glad to see cli_credentials starting to get good use across
the codebase. I'm well aware it isn't ideal, but it is an improvement
and the consistency brings us great opportunities.
