Allow pasting of passwords when signing up

The sign up form disallows pasting of passwords into the two password fields.
This hinders the use of securely-generated passwords (e.g. copied and pasted from LastPass, KeePass, etc).
I was able to circumvent this restriction by adding a value attribute to the two textboxes containing my desired (copy-and-pasted) password using Chrome Developer Tools, but other users may not be so persistent and could use insecure memorisable passwords as a result.

Please consider allowing pasted passwords on the signup page.
