      I like this feature as a gixmo and am pleased it is a part of the login process.  That said the new pin feature is what gets me in 99% of the time as it is the fastest to execute.

      What about password recovery ?
      Will this feature support it ?
      I assume it makes a copy of the image it use so you can move the image you chose to a different location without any problems.
      I assume this feature will support mouse too. 

      If for some reason the picture password doesn't work, the touch display stopped responding to touch for example, can you switch to type a normal character password instead with a keyboard ?
