Yeah, there's an API to change a user's password.  I can't
remember what it is though, but it definitely does exist. Reason
I know is because I was once given a project to write a web
page on the AS/400 to allow someone to change their password.

Not real secure as the unencrypted password is going over the
wire, but it worked.

That was at another company, though, and I no longer have
access to the code.
