we could probably add an additional click to the process if no password was requested.  

I believe right now the button is labeled [Next] anyway, so we could just move it to [Sign In]  like we do when there's a password.

Of course the user might get annoyed if they hit enter and nothing happens, so we may want to proceed automatically if the user stays idle for N seconds for some small value of N.
