I was wondering how the code for random assignment of password is 
implemented in the admin's membership mass-subscribe function.  What if 
there was a reserved word, say RANDU, that the subscription script would 
recognize.  If you created a subscription box like I did, but in the hidden 
field put in RANDU, it would call the random algorithm that is used by mass 
subscribe to assign a password for the user.

Those tiny boxes sure are convenient, it would be nice if a little hook 
like this could be put in to support it.
