Set Master Password via Script

Any suggestions on how to script/automate the process of setting a OS X Master Password?

Im not setting it for FDE (We dont use FileVault). Rather, Im setting a Master Password so that end-users dont try and set one (and then forget it etc).

The Master Password function is a holdover from the legacy FileVault days. All it does is set up a FileVaultMaster.keychain file in /Library/Keychains and set that password as the password to unlock the FileVaultMaster.keychain file.
