I wonder what would happen if you gave them a shell of "/usr/bin/passwd"...?

That should work. I just tested. When an ssh connection is made, it executes
passwd. As soon as the password is changed, the ssh connection was closed:

   %ssh -l asdf
   Changing local password for asdf
   Old Password:
   New Password:
   Retype New Password:
   Connection to closed.

Should make for some fascinating experiences with sftp.  :-)
