An enhancement to add a "random password generator" to the field below password and password again

to make it easier to create random passwords for users.

this goes one step beyond the password strength meter, to give admins the ability to create completely random passwords

Simply because I don't want to lose this code again, here is a javascript version of wp_generate_password:

var wp_generate_password = function(length, special_chars) {
        length = ( typeof length == 'undefined' ) ? 12 : length;
        special_chars = ( typeof special_chars == 'undefined' ) ? true : special_chars;
        chars = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789';
        if ( special_chars )
                chars = chars + '!@#$%^&*()';
        password = '';
        for ( i = 0; i < length; i++ ) {
                start = Math.floor(Math.random()*chars.length);
                password = password + chars.substring(start - 1, start);
        return password;

I figure this could be of use for this ticket.
