Problem: I use a very strong PW (18 char long) to protect my DB during traveling, computer shut-downs and reboots. It is inconvenient to re-type such long PW during normal working hours when the DB is idle-locked, leading to setting time-lock value to a long period, thus overall security is reduced.

Request: To allow an alternate, reduced strength (e.g. 4 - 5 chars long) PW, to be user-assigned during the normal DB opening, residing only in RAM, and be sufficient to open the DB after idle-locks.

Comment: No need to re-encrypt the DB with this temp PW - my raw idea is to look at the possibility of using the temp PW to populate (after the appropriate manipulation) the last few chars of the normal decryption key.
