or just pull the drive, mount it in another machine, and pull the
config from it.  Or boot the machine from any number of Live CD's and
pull the config directly over to a floppy, USB key, etc.

was discussed at the same time and not implemented.  Given the limited
ability to do anything directly at the console, password protection is
the least of your worries from someone that has physical access.
