Yet undecided whether we should include this option from the GUI, or
require the user to add this to the config. Unlike
management-query-passwords adding this option always has the side effect of
querying for remote. That may annoy/burden some users who want to leave it
to the daemon via remote-random or use the first that works or whatever.

Or, we could always add this option, and just accept the first prompt if
the user does not want this feature.
