Is it possible to set root password and add sudo user within a heat template file?


I'm currently fine tuning the following heat template file or use with rackspace orchestration: link text

To expedite orchestration, I was wondering if it was possible to specify a root password(auto generated) and add an additional sudo user also with auto generated pw-- that I could then show in output list. I know that it's probably not the best protocol to rely on these auto-generated passwords, but I'd like to use them for the sake of being able to output them immediately after setup instead of having to go into the cloud console to change it in order to gain access.
