Why don't you simply integrate the complete password stuf into the core -
backend as well as frontend.
If a user has forgotten his problem this isn't a problem at all - simply as
standard he gets a random generated one and can change it later if he wants

Simply make the highest standards of security the TYPO3 standard and don't
ask if someone wants a less secure one. If they want to change it to
unsecure it will be their fault if they get hacked and not the one of an
insecure TYPO3.

Big Plus in this approach would also be that all this hick hack with
connecting a backend user with a frontend user could be integrated in core
to and working simply by default. Check out eZ-Publish how they do it. You
install the site and you have a secure login and much much more automatic
installed which improves security beside the fact that when you install an
eZ-Publish or eZ-Flow you already have a working site and can start simply
with inserting content ;-)

Same is to Silverstripe, Magento, CMSMS and many more high class CMS. They
simply try to provide the highest standard in password and login security
just from scratch when you start installing your site - WHY NOT TYPO3?
