I'm going to have to vote 'silly' on this one.  While I agree that in
general we should discourage, and not provide explicit command-line
options for, passing a password on the command-line, I don't feel that
it makes sense to explicitly complicate things to prevent it.

It's a matter of being consistent. If we think such a facility shouldn't be provided on security grounds, then we shouldn't allow it via a backdoor, ISTM.
