OK, after writing a password handler based on JAAS, I discovered that the
PasswordCallback set to display = false, still displays the password on the
command line.  I think it's reasonable to assume that this has already been
reported as a bug to Sun, so...

My next avenue was to write a simple Swing GUI inputhandler.  It works rather
nicely although I'm not sure exactly how I can write a unit test for it...

Just call with the -inputhandler org.apache.tools.ant.input.GUIInputHandler.  It
looks for a "pass" within the prompt and if found masks the input, otherwise it
behaves like the console version, echoing back the input.

I'll attach the patch in a moment.  Very simple and I don't claim to be a UI
programmer so please forgive the clunkiness.
