I would argue actually that this switch is a horrible idea and we
must take it out entirely.  The method Ian proposes for hiding the
password after reading it is certainly not portable in the slightest,
and even if we could make it work on all platforms (which we can't)
I don't think it would be good enough, because there would still be
a window where the superuser password was exposed to view before
we could wipe it out.

Agreed. The attached patch should do the trick.

From a cursory glance at the patch it looks OK to me. I don't have time to test it right now.

Sorry about this, I should have removed the username / password switches a while ago.
