Feature request: Administrator change user password (Features)

A much desired feature is the ability for an administrator to change a user's password.

There are two reasons for this:

1) Sometimes a user is not able to request a new password. For example, sometimes a email server is blocked due to spam and as a result no email comes thru. I have seen examples in Sweden of a large Internet provider which had a lot of problems with it's own email servers that got blocked due to spam.

2) If a user account doesn't work, it is useful for me as a administrator to be able to set a new password to see if I am able to login to the user's account.

In the meantime, is there a solution to set the user password, for example by a SQL query in phpMyAdmin? I know the user ID.
