remove 'password' as an option in default synapse config file

Description

The current synapse config file that is created for a user without one has information on setting their password here. We should discourage this behavior in lieu of using the apikey within the config, or to login the client with 'rememberMe'.

the pull request looks good.
What is the intended resolution for existing users? They already have a .synapseConfig file with password as a field. How do we address or not address user’s confusion about different version of .synapseConfig?
