View passwords in setup?

Would it be possible to add an option to view passwords in setup?

I had to reinstall after the update to core 183 caused boot problems (I assumed grub issues but had to just reinstall because I couldn’t find my root password). After reinstalling, I was unable to login to root - it kept telling me the password was incorrect. I reinstalled again with same results. The only thing I can come up with is that I was using a wireless keyboard and maybe it isn’t consistently transmitting or maybe has a bad key for one of the characters in my root password (admin login works).

I know this would obviously be low priority as I believe using a known good wired keyboard would have prevented this fiasco.

simple question Jeff: which is your keyboard layout?
