functionality was already there (partly in input() and partly for getting the
crypt key), this patch adds more code than I would think is necessary.
A few hints:
- move the code from input() and inputsecret() together in a new function,
most of it is the same.
- Don't add a new start-character to getcmdline(), using NUL should work,
since you don't want the typed text in a history.
- There are flags for crypt that make the text appear as stars. Probably need
to rename them to "stars" instead of "crypt".
If you don't understand this, I should probably do it myself...
