Yes, via commandline:

moin ... account resetpw --name=JoeDoe hisnewpassword

Alternatively, if you are superuser, you could log in to YOUR account,
use the user list (via Settings link at the top) to impersonate that
user and just put a known password in for him.

Yes, we could do lots via shiny web interfaces.

The problem is just that no developer yet jumped on this. :)
