Patch [^ACCUMULO-1412-v1.patch] depends on the v3 patch from ACCUMULO-1478, applies to trunk
with {{-p1}}.

This patch allows users to specify the value to {{--password}} as any of the following:
* pass:<password>
* file:<local file>
* env:<environment variable>
* stdin

The design is extensible for future implementations, as I know [~ctubbsii] had expressed an
interest in wiring it to gnome-keyring.

> 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.
