mac server lion - allow users to have blank password


Can I eliminate the password requirement for users in Mac Server 10.7?  If so, how.

Thanks very much.

Best regards,

I did some research but could not find any evidence that blank passwords were supported in 10.7.  In previous versions you could but it looks like a password is required now.  Main reason is, many of the services such as sudo in command line, will not work with a blank password.  So to make it easier, I believe apple just simply made it a requirement.
