I think we need to have an ability to delegate some privileges to a temporary user subaccounts. For example, if I want to allow a script to automatically push to a certain repository of mine, but not to others, I might create a subaccount with a randomly generated username and/or password, assign certain rights to it, and thus also avoid having to put my password into the script. If the username/password pair is somehow compromised, it would be easy to revoke it without having to change the account password.
