Bug Description

For those of us not skilled in XPath, it would be far easier to script OpenSRF installation if the sample password fields in opensrf_core.xml were unique strings, making them available to tools like sed, awk, and perl.

Branch forthcoming

Posting this on the Evergreen and OpenSRF bugs:

Instead of changing the passwords themselves we could do something like <passwd sedtype="opensrf public"> and so long as the attribute was still there you could always find it, even if the password has already been changed.

I agree with Thomas that an XML attribute would work better -- maybe call it "type" or "context" rather than "sedtype", though. Removing pullrequest for now, although I think the general idea of making it easier to script putting in credentials is a fine one.
