Subject: Question about passwords

Regarding the odd-numbered password levels, something keeps bugging me:

What exactly IS a "NetServer password," how does it differ from a user's normal password, and why are there password levels that appear to do nothing but get rid of them?

The help text on the QPWDLVL system value bandies the term about as if it were common knowledge.

(A bit pleased with myself, having managed to avoid having to ask the "Bare Metal" list for help figuring out how to call the V5+ version of QSYCHGPW from a program compiled under V4R2)
