   a property should be set by the task that has already been set in the
   project (and the task wouldn't have any effect).</p>
  +<p>A regular complaint about this task is that it echoes characters to the
  +console, this is a critical security defect, we must fix it immediately, etc, etc.
  +We know it leaves something to be desired, but the problem is Java, not Ant.
  +There is nothing we can do to stop the console echoing. </p>
  +IDE behaviour depends upon the IDE: some hang waiting for input, some let you
  +type it in. For this situation, place the password in a (secured) property
  +file and load in before the input task.</p>
