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
