It's one of those pedantic things I struggle with when I contribute to these things. A hard coded cheat password is a genuine cheat, a random password that happens to work and is one of many possible variants doesn't count! What I'd like to see instead for passwords is a list of all the attributes that can be modified, then a link to a password generator (or even better if someone here is clever enough to write their own). My compromise for Bubble Bobble was to provide passwords for single player with all levels and items unlocked + two player with all levels and items unlocked. And of course, a link to the smspower password generator.
