Title: #317: Unify password generation across FreeIPA

stlaz commented:
 The passwords should have around the same entropy now. SHA-1 actually produces 
160bit outputs (hence 40-characters long hexadecimal digests), so I recounted 
it for 20-bytes entropy.

As ipa_generate_password creates passwords of only printable characters (and a 
space) by default, base64 should not be a requirement here. However, a space 
could be a problem somewhere I guess, should it be removed as well from the 
defaul behavior of the password generator?
