Serial console password

Description

Dear all,

I would like to set a password to serial console, without recompiling busybox.
/bin/login is not available in Chaos Calmer snapshots.

Would it be possible to have /bin/login in a separate packate and we would only need to set:
/etc/inittab
::askconsole:/bin/login

From a legal point of view, using computers without a password is not allowed in some countries, including France. This would make using OpenWRT illegal.

Also, reading the documentation, it does not seem very clear to readers that OpenWRT serial console is "WIDE OPEN" and that anyone can become root in 2 seconds using two wires.

Kind regards,
Gnutella
