Enhancement to ACS Plugin PWCHANGE

For many end-users, they are not given the ACS interface - simply an icon to click for the system or system(s) they have access to. For these users, they would have to click each icon representing each system they have access to change their password. To automate the password change they must either be given a full ACS client or other synching mechanism. To use ACS, they would need to know where to navigate or a DOS command line like interface. These are generally foreign interfaces for end-users. Those who implement solutions and administrators would like a simplified user-friendly interface where the end-user could be programmatically prompted for specific system(s) to change their password uniformly across systems. Additionally, to show the progress of the password change across the systems as it occurs. The PWCHANGE plugin could be leveraged to provide a more user-friendly experience but would require an option to prompt the GUI - thus the ask.
