           Version: 8.8p1

Sudo has a feature that allows it to be configured to display * on
password input.  Perhaps this can also be done in SSH.


I created a small implementation on the portable version for this. 
Please see attached patch file.  Original target version was 8.6p1 but
it also works with 8.8p1.  It still needs configurability.
