This is overengineered for the task.  I like the ideas of either having
a pam based tool like gnome-passwd or a passwd based one.  Pulling in
GObjects and DBus is just too much for such a simple tool.

Maybe when this library is more mature, this would be a good idea, but
for 2.12 timeframe it's not right.
