Allow password set on User's admin interface

The password field that currently appears on the admin page for "User" is the field with the hashed value in it. It is difficult to set or reset a user's password with this page, because it requires generating the correct string in a Python interpreter shell and cutting and pasting it into the field. Overall, it is just simpler to use the raw User.set_password() function in a shell.

This request is for an additional "password" field on the admin interface. When a value is entered into this field, it is used to set the user's password. The old password field should then be renamed "password hash" and be hidden by default.
