If I have a user that has a nologin shell and they forget
thier password, is there a way to give them a new password?

Right now I am resetting their password to nil, then
giving them a shell like /bin/sh, logging in on their behalf,
setting up a password, and then changing their shell back
to /bin/nologin.

I would like to elliminate the noshell to shell and then
back to noshell part.
