---------------------------------------

Yes, it's worth doing.  I wanted to do it eventually.

> OpenSSL allows the user to read the password from a number of places, including a file,
environment variable, file descriptor, command line argument, or standard in. It would be
nice for accumulo to do the same, to ease scripting while still not revealing password through
{{ps}} or it's brethren.
> A logical way to implement this might be using a [JCommander Custom Type|http://jcommander.org/#Custom_types]
for the password field.
