How to allow the user to choose their password during checkout?


I'm trying to determine the best way to allow users to choose a password during anonymous checkout.
Obviously, I don't want to store it on the order, I'm wondering it it's best to add a password_confirm field to the form using a form alter, or completely alter the "account" pane by another one, passing the password as a property of the order until it's treated (by a rule in the future) and isn't needed any more.

Do you have any suggestions? I'm willing to contribute the module once it's working.

The header at the top accesses this or a similar page before customer uses cart. When customer makes selection in cart and goes to checkout the below page is shown.

In effect, the login/registration is accessed before the cart is shown.


Also there is manual and automatic logout after customer leaves site.

No need to reinvent the wheel. Just find a competent easy to use e-commerce store and do it that way. People appreciate ease of use, but they are also very interested to know how secure and competently your site deals with their business.

This is a very important part of the sales process, and IMO not well addressed in DC at this time. Your contribution will be very much appreciated.
