Bug Description

I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 dev with passwd 1: If I'm entering the command passwd I will get the output "Enter new UNIX password:" and "Retype new UNIX password:". For example if the command is running from a script it is not possible to know for which user the password changes are made. It would be easier to have an output like "Enter new UNIX password for root:" and "Retype new UNIX password for root:".
