I am not sure I understand you exactly. What I was suggesting was passing in 
the passphrase on a filedescriptor (stdin in the example). So it never needs 
to be echoes anywhere. You just store it in memory in the <input/> task and 
use it in the gpg task. If you were relaly paranoid you could delete the 
property after ;)
