10.6: Set a firmware password from the command line
Authored by: manicmoose on Sep 13, '11 03:56:06AM

This worked for me on my mid-2010 MBP running Lion.
Interestingly, running "setregproptool -c" *does* clear the password, and did *not* require me to authenticate in any way whatsoever.
Of course, I was already logged in, but still, if you run the GUI version it *does* make you enter your user password first.
Slack, apple, slack.
