"adminId" is the user id of the administrator user, not a password. See
the comment above.

The SimpleLoginModule does not provide any secure authentication, it will
accept any password. There are three types of users, which are solely
separated by the user id: the anonymous user (given by anonymousId,
defaults to "anonymous") has only read rights. Then the administrative
super user (given by adminId, defaults to "admin"), which can do anything.
And finally any other user (all other user ids, needs no config) will have
normal read and write permissions, but not certain admin things like node
type management IIRC.
