For long passphrases and if you are anyway working out of sight of
cameras it is convenient to actually see what you are typing.  Thus a
hide/show button for password entries is desirable.  What do you think
of a toggle button to the right of the entry field?

The patch below implements this for the GTK pinentry.  It does not
actually work but I would like to get an opinion on the behaviour:
("***" = hidden, "abc" - visible).




Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
