[wordpress][SSO] Eliminate Password Requirement for merging existing vanilla user accounts?

This discussion is related to the Vanilla jsConnect addon.

Version: 2.3.1

Plug-Ins used:
- wordpress plugin
- jsconnect
- jsconnect auto sign-in

Hello, will try to keep this simple. ;-)

I have the wordpress Single Sign On plug-in working great in V231. However, when a user logs into wordpress with info that matches up to an existing account (I don't know exactly how accounts get matched) (we ported about 6,000 users), there is a process that happens that requires the user to type in their password in order to merge the accounts.

Since passwords no longer matter in Vanilla (because of Single Sign-On), I would like to avoid the password part entirely, and just automatically merge the accounts.

If anyone knows how to do that, I'd sure appreciate the hand-holding.
