After sending my patch for 'samba-tool user password', I thought about 
it and decided I was going in the wrong direction.

The tool needs to be more user friendly, but it also needs to be more 
script friendly. At the moment, nobody is exactly sure how to use it and 
it would also seem to be impossible to wrap a script around it.

The attached patch has better help i.e. how to use 'samba-user user 
password', it now also has another option '--oldpassword'

Being able to give both the old and new passwords as parameters to the 
command, means that you can now wrap a script around the tool and, if 
anybody is interested, I have a working yad script.
