Another way to go is to just have the ability to define functions as
defaults and have a 'password(length)' function available. This way on
deploy, if no value was specified, it would be generated, and available as
'juju get myservice password' immediately after an automated deployment
For now, the charm should probably just use juju-log to inform the user
about it, and they can extract it from debug-log or the charm log if
need be. Another option is to error out with a message informing the
user that this setting is required.
Anyway, I went ahead and added the policy. If you see default passwords
in use in existing charms, please file a critical bug in the charm. If
you are a member of charmers, please *fix* that bug. :)
