RedirectorElement and Redirector to suppress the
logging of the input string.  Seeing passwords echoed
is irritating to say the least, and it would be simple
enough to add this option for a modicum of--if not
security, then dignity, at least.  Signjar could
configure a RedirectorElement internally to keep the
passed input hidden, and the same approach would be
available to users wanting to pass sensitive text into
an external process.
