A password calculator :)

In its current state there is no protocol specific issues. All it does is to return
strings which the protocols may use. The reason I don't feel it shouldn't be in
protocols is that it does not depend on anything in twisted for operation. Nor is it
protocolbound, actually the logic place to use it is in passport.Identity. And generate
the object otp.OTP each time the password is set. But if you wish, I can move it.
