Safe ?

That looks totaly boggus the way it currently is.

First, looking at the prompt, input not echoed just make me think that
something is broken.

But what happens if I start emacs in the background ? or if emacs is
started from an application launcher with no stdin or stdout ?

Please give me a way to enter my passphrase as I always did, that is
from the mini buffer, even if it's unsafe from the point of view of
paranoids !

Thanks
