Creating a user who can't change his password

I want to create a user who can not change his password. Unfortunately, all users have the ability to change their...

own password. One of the ways to get around this is to implement a password verification function that will always fail, no matter what the password. Then assign this password verification function to that user.

Keep in mind that in today's ever-increasing need for secure databases, that passwords should be changed on a regular basis. Disabling password changing for a user is probably not a very good idea.
