So, if we are talking features, I think the one I can see being the most 
useful for me is when an admin is adding user accounts with the 
dashboard, is the email subsystem notifies the users with onetime login 
URL, forcing the user to setup a password.

This way the admin doesn't have to deal with transmitting passwords to 
each user.

Actually, I guess I am talking about a password reset token.
