Actually, on looking at the final form of the patch, it's hard to think
that it's not just useless API churn.  The one existing hook user would
have to turn around and call get_password_type() anyway, so it's not
an improvement for that use-case.  What's the argument that most other
use-cases wouldn't need to do the same?
