This was exactly intended for the bulk provisioning.

The idea was that you execute this command and then have kickstart files
seeded or parameterized with this password so you will have 150
kickstart files that differ in the password value fanned out or you have
one kickstart file and the password is passed as a parameter.

This was the vision. It definitely require some collaboration with tools
like Satellite, Cobbler, Foreman, etc. We are not tried it ourselves but
hope that those projects would be able to use parametarized or seeded
kickstart files.
