Not sure if we can vote on features on this list but this patch is 
something I would definitely use. I often want to generate passwords 
with metadata (username etc) and my workflow now is to generate the 
password first and then editing it right away. This also makes Git 
history weird that it’s not atomic change when I’m basically 
creating single entry.
