As a Administrator I don't want to look up the setup password if the server is my local machine

In order to log into the setup tool, a user needs to look up the password stored in a file in ./Data/. This is a good security measure for remote servers, however we may be able to avoid this step for a local machine:

If we try to include the file through an iFrame (using the path, like file:///foo/bar/baz) and that file would contain JS sending the password to the parent frame, the password could be entered and submitted automatically if the user is using a browser from the same machine Phoenix is being installed at.

I'm not 100% sure if this is technically possible, but we might want to try this.
