Yeah. Generate a secure random password and then: "The HTTP interface may
contain nuts, fry your cat and harm your children. It will be protected by
password XXXXXXXX. Do you really wish to enable the HTTP interface? [Abort
abort abort] [Yes, I am insane]"
At least then the password won't be asdfg. Unfortunately, this fails to
protect against MITM on the local network.
