[IPython-dev] Reading in passwords in IPython 1.0

    MinRK had an extension module that implemented raw_input() and
getpass() for the pre-1.0 IPython Notebook interface.

    In 1.0, raw_input() works nicely in a browser, but
getpass.getpass() still goes to the stdin in the terminal window where
the notebook was started. Is there a built in way to get a non-echoing
password prompt in the browser interface, or is the
nbinput.nbgetpass() function still the only game in town?
