Interactive password

Hi again,

Even with /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf with 600 perms, I'm having a hard
time living with my password hard-coded on my hard-disk...

Is there any way to invoke an interactive password query like an
ssh-askpass?

I know that wpa_cli can be used somehow, but it is not very flexible.
wpa_gui sound promising, but I compiled it, and I think that it still
needs work. Nirvana will probably be provided, one day, if the planets
align properly, by NetworkManager, but it is not there...

Nico
