Change Mac 0S X Mountain Lion minimum password length

Just want to know if it's possible to set the minimum password length.  ML asks for passwords so often that I want something short.  It's a home network.  Security is not an issue.  I'm a technical user so editing plists or whatever is not a problem.

Mountain Lion normally doesn't ask for a password. Under what circumstances is it asking for a password?

Are you saying it's different than Lion?  Lion asked for passwords constantly.  

Whenever I try to change anything remotely system related it asks for a password.  For example: Saving a new scheduled task in Carbon Copy Cloner.  I get 'Carbon Copy Cloner wants to make changes.  Type your password to allow this.'.  

I'm an administrator on the machine and was also when it was running Lion.

You are right.  Somehow, I had the idea that they had a 5 character minimum.

Thanks.
