we have discussed this several times in the past but we never really got anywhere.

We could make it an option in future versions provided it did not result in a security issue.

My thought would be to add a checkbox next to the password field and if checked the password would be shown, if not shown than asterisks. If the user clciks the checkbox and a password is already entered the user would be prompted and warned the password is about to be cleared, they would click ok and the password field would then show passwords as clear text.

By doing the above we eliminate any security risk of existing passwords being shown, the user will have to re-enter all the passwords they want displayed as plain text.
