When you start new company in network game, it have initially no password. Many times I forgot to set it, so some people have joined my company, sometimes doing more harm than good.
I think it would be nice to set up in settings your "personal password" which would be applied by default on any new company you create.
I found no such option in r10429.
This task depends upon

I saw it was implemented in 11556, but there are some minor caveat/things that could be improved:

- password is stored in openttd.cfg in plaintext. While not such a bad approach, I think the fact should be mentioned in the documentation.
- When joining game, there is no button "autofill default password", even if the plaintext password is known to openttd.
