gpg-agent: hide my passphrase length

I just discovered gpg-agent and it's useful to type my passphrase less 

Without gpg-agent, when gpg prompts me for a passphrase, it does not 
display the number of characters I type. But when I enter my passphrase 
in gpg-agent, a star is displayed for every letter I type (I use 
pinentry-curses as a backend). 

So, I feel less secure. It may not be so important, but I don't like it 
when people can see length of my passwords. I looked for a way to change 
that behaviour, but found none. 

Do you known of a solution ?

thanks a lot
