Specify expected ESPHome password

When I add a new ESPHome device to my Home Assistant setup, I have to enter the ESPHome device’s password to establish the connection. That’s reasonable. But every one of my ESPHome devices uses the same password, so every time I add (or re-add) a device, I have to copy/paste the same master password from my scrapbook (or more often from File Editor → config/esphome/common/my-secret-subs.yaml). It’s tedious and repetitive.

I wish that I could specify a default or expected ESPHome password in the Home Assistant/ESPHome integration, so that the add operation first tried that password, then prompted me only if it failed. This seems like a reasonable shortcut for folks like me (who probably represent many typical users).
