> Specifying connection string using commandline options in beeline is 
> convenient, as it gets saved in shell command history, and it is easy to 
> retrieve it from there.
> However, specifying the password in command prompt is not secure as it gets 
> displayed on screen and saved in the history.
> It should be possible to specify '-p' without an argument to make beeline 
> prompt for password.
